With the 5G launch, global smartphone internet speeds have increased


As more individuals gain access to 5G, cellular data speeds have started to rise throughout the world, allowing for faster and more reliable connections “nearly everywhere.”

Global internet speeds have increased, according to a new OpenSignal research, owing to 5G’s extensive deployment, which started in late 2019.

South Korea has seen a significant improvement in download speeds. Users in South Korea used to get an average of 52.4 Mbps before the introduction of 5G. South Korea has been ranked as the greatest location to play online games based on internet speed as a consequence of these speed gains.


The average speed in Canada has risen from 42.5 Mbps to 64.1 Mbps, which is a significant improvement. From 21.7Mbps to 39.7Mbps, the UK witnessed a significant boost while the US had a little smaller gain of 21.3Mbps.

Although 5G has helped increase speeds throughout the world, it is still under development. That’s why OpenSource stresses that 5G is just beginning and that the service will continue to develop, just like 4G.

To now, the majority of 5G services rely on Release 15 of the 5G standard. As part of the 3GPP standardisation process every few years, suppliers and mobile operators work together to develop a new mark of technology to enhance the user experience. There are already a number of 5G prototypes in different phases of research or perfected and ready for commercial use.
In October 2020, Apple will release the first iPhone in its range to support 5G. The iPhone 13, fifth-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, third-generation 11-inch iPad Pro, and sixth-generation iPad Mini are now all compatible with 5G mobile networks, as well.
