5G: Main Driving Forces

Last edited: Nov 29th 2019

This article was created from a transcription of the Pawel Wypychowski interview by Nick Pineault: "Why 5G Radiation Might Be Worse Even At A Lower Power".

Main driving forces of the 5G technology:

Growing consumer demand for high speed transmission: 4k & 8k video is estimated to account for ~80% of traffic

5G frequency range:

Frequency #1: Under 7Ghz -> existing spectrum. This allows telecoms to use existing infrastructure and focuses on coverage. Cannot transmit fast rates to many consumers at this range.

Frequency #2: 24 - 71 Ghz: Millimeter waves: focus on capacity and data speed. Range is much shorter.
