How was the debut of 5G in SP

The “pure” 5G arrived in São Paulo this Thursday (4).

The connection icon shown on the cell phone is the same, but the connection of the “standalone” technology, on the new 3.5 GHz frequency, proved to be faster than the “impure” 5G connection, which uses the 4G frequency.

in numbers: in tests carried out by Sheetwith a Samsung Galaxy A33 5G, the speeds of the official version of 5G exceeded ten times the previous version.

  • The download speed of “pure” 5G ranged from 300 and 400 Mbps (megabits per second), while that of “impure” reached 36.4 Mbps, considered a low value even for 4G.

  • Download speed determines how long data takes to download from the internet.

Can improve: “pure” 5G promises an average speed of 1 Gbps (gigabit per second), ten times greater than the predecessor, reaching 20 Gbps.

  • For this, the more antennas, the better, given the lower range of the 3.5GHz frequency. In São Paulo, operators installed and registered around 1,400 of them, almost triple the minimum required by Anatel.

The number of antennas also influences the technology’s latency (time to transfer data from one point to another), one of the great advances promised by 5G for industry, medicine, etc.

  • In the tests, the lowest value reached was 13 ms (milliseconds), while the technology’s promise is to deliver latency up to 1 month.

  • For coverage to be broad, of quality and with low latency, companies need to build, on average, ten times more antennas in relation to the park installed in the country.

Do you live in São Paulo or in one of the other four capitals with access to fifth-generation technology? See if you need to change SIM cards, plan and which cell phones are compatible.
