Yes after early debut of 4G technology, we are now again facing another surprise from the developers of this technology. They call it 5G technologies which promise a faster mobile internet for the consumers.
If you can figure out internet options in your area, especially if it is 4G, don’t just be contented with the faster mobile internet that you can receive. Be mindful that as the sales of smartphone and tablet users increase, it would have a direct impact to the congestion of the wireless networks provided by the network companies.
Give it five years from now and you would feel the deterioration of your internet speed. This is the prediction of the network developers. That is why while you are enjoying the current comfort 4G is offering, they are busy in researching and developing a much faster mobile internet connection.
So what would you expect from 5G technology? Here are the facts that would excite you for the future.
Faster mobile internet connection
It would be an understatement to say that 5G offers faster mobile internet connection from 4G technology. However, according to the standard of the International Telecommunications Union, 5G technology would have a speed of one gigabyte per second. It’s a literal speed that can download an HD movie in less than a minute. Imagine the data that speed can offer you? Another shocking part is it can actually shared by the entire household. For example, if you are comfortable with slower mobile internet speed, then you can actually share the remaining bandwidth to your family members. And that’s what we call intelligent network.
The developers of this technology do not only focus on the speed. They also put emphasis on the reliability and usefulness of this technology which is not seen in the 4G. With intelligent capability to distinguish priority connections, consumers can now put machines into their internet. For example, you could actually set your thermostat in plus 20 degrees hotter even if you are still driving two miles away from your home. When you are in an emergency, this technology allows you to prioritize emergency calls using VoIP than your social media sites. They predicted that this technology in internet connectivity will be more inclined in the introduction of IP based machines, instruments and appliances. Would this be true, we don’t really know. What is cleat though is that it can make human lives more convenient.
5G technology has been predicted to be much cheaper compared to its ancestors. This is because data caps will be avoided and companies will now charge its consumers in a much affordable price. Indirectly, people can save from the costly internet bill because of the 5G’s capacity to share. From the point of view of consumers, this technology is the best way to do things like watching TV, using the telephone and watching expensive movies in the cinemas in a single billed internet service. Now, you can save more from those expensive cable and telephone bills.

Facebook Inc. and its shareholders raised $16 billion in an initial public offering of stock. It is the largest IPO by far for an Internet company. The amount raised comes from how many shares were sold by the company and its early investors — 421.2 million — at the IPO price of $38.
Shares sold in an IPO are typically just a fraction of the total shares a company has issued. That’s why, at an IPO price of $38 per share, all of Facebook’s share give the company an initial market value of $104 billion.
More shares, known as an overallotment, have been set aside if demand is heavy. If they are all sold, the IPO will raise $18.4 billion.
