How 5G Will Change the Way You Consume TV and Internet
What happens when you have cable and internet installed in your home? Someone comes out to run the cables, drills holes everywhere to accommodate the variable wires you’ll need and installs a modem to give you internet connectivity.
When 5G rolls out nationwide, most of these inconveniences will disappear.
Right now, you probably have cables coming from the telephone pole outside your house or apartment. These cables connect you to both your TV/cable service and your internet connection. Maybe your home uses Wi-Fi to get your internet connection in all the rooms, and cable runs to each room so your family can watch their favorite shows anywhere.
5G is your wireless option that works faster than the current wired broadband. While most people rely on wired broadband to play games, stream videos, and more, 5G technology lets you forget about all those cords. It’s just as reliable without all the headaches.
A single modem
Do you have a bunch of cable boxes and other gadgets so you get all the channels you want and access to internet? With 5G, you’ll have a single wireless modem that gives you everything you need.
You won’t have the standard cable line into your home. Instead you’ll have streaming television like YouTube TV with access to all the channels you want. And now, your wireless modem will connect to the 5G signal which lets you access TV and internet throughout your home instead of running cable to every room.
As 5G rolls out nationwide, you may not have access to as many television channels as you do with cable. Have patience, however, because things are changing fast.
Patience is your best virtue as we wait for the major carriers to roll out 5G nationwide. Currently, only select cities receive 5G, while others are waiting patiently for their chance at this new, amazing technology. As more cities get 5G, expect your TV and internet consumption to change drastically — for the better.
