5G Will Replace 4G Entirely
Let’s be clear, 5G is a bundle of new wireless connectivity technologies that provides a massive upgrade to 4G across a broader spectrum of frequencies. If this sounds familiar, it’s because that’s basically what 4G was to 3G, except the 5G difference is even more noticeable.
But just as before with the other “G” tech, 5G won’t cancel out 4G just by existing. They even require different hardware to work. So if your smartphone isn’t 5G compatible, that’s fine. Nothing’s going to happen to your 4G connection, at least not until decades from now when it simply becomes obsolete.
