The development of cellular telecommunications is now in the transition phase to newer generations. However, there is a lot of 5G controversy that makes people wonder. What are the controversies? Check out more!
Along with the development of cellular and internet telecommunications technology, now a new generation of internet has emerged with more sophisticated and super-fast technology.
What’s more, if it’s not 5G , the cellular telecommunications technology that is predicted to have internet speeds reaches 20Gbps.
Many people have speculations and their own opinions about the existence of 5G technology and the various controversies that surround it.
Is 5G available? When will this technology be implemented in Indonesia?
Check out the full 5G technology controversy below!
5G or Fifth Generation is the term from the next telecommunications standard, or more easily is the next generation of 4G. The letter G in the word 5G means generation or generation.
Quoted from PC Magazine, the first cellular telecommunications technology called 1G, which uses analog cellular technology, better known as AMPS and TACS.
Then came the 2G which became the first digital cellular technology in 1991. 2G uses CDMA, GSM, and TDMA technologies.
In 1998, the next generation emerged which became the third generation of cellular telecommunications. 3G uses EVDO, HSPA, and UMTS technologies that are able to provide internet speeds ranging from 200kbps.
In 2008, the fourth generation of cellular telecommunications was developed and first appeared commercially in 2009 in Norway and Sweden.
The technology used by 4G is WiMAX and LTE. This technology that until now you use on cellphones.
Quoted from The Verge, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is a cell phone without a network. This exclusive mobile is sold by Verizon in the US.
Although Verizon has announced that it has opened 5G networks in several regions. However, there is no 5G technology support provided for the HP itself.
Even though Verizon might argue that it already has a 5G network, it doesn t have a 5G network for phones - The Verge
Chances are, 5G technology will begin to enter the commercial stage and be used by the community in 2020. What do you think, gang?
2. 5G tissue radiation
Beyond the trend of 5G networks at high speed, are there negative things that will be produced ?
Quoted from Eluxe Magazine, 5G technology causes radio frequency radiation or radiofrequency radiation (RFR).
In 2011, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer stated that RFR can cause 2B carcinogens which will trigger brain tumors.
In addition, several studies mention the danger of RFR used on cellphones:
Cell metabolic disorders
Reduction of melatonin (insomnia)
Disorders of brain glucose metabolism
There are still many other potential side effects that can affect the human body due to RFR radiation. However, this influence is only as a potential, further research is needed on this matter.
What do you think?
3. Smartphones Support 5G
Smartphones that support 5G are indeed being developed, some of which will be released like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.
Here are some phones that will appear in the future:
Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
Sony Xperia XZ4
There are still many other smartphones that will come and support 5G technology . Are you interested in buying it in the near future, gang?
4. Is 5G Suitable in Indonesia?
The last is the use of 5G networks in Indonesia, can it be used in the country in the near future?
Like the discussion about 5G in Indonesia that Jaka mentioned earlier , the existence of 5G you cannot enjoy in the near future.
This is reinforced by the absence of government support related to the 5G network. There has been no trial or research conducted officially by the government.
On the other hand, Qualcomm Indonesia’s Senior Marketing Manager, Dominikus Susanto, thinks 5G is ready in Indonesia.
Once there is, there are not necessarily many Indonesians who are interested in being users. Quoted from Eji Insight, the 5G internet data package in Finland is in the price range of 50 euros, or equivalent to Rp790 thousand per month.
Are you willing to pay internet for Rp700 thousand per month?
The final word
That’s the 5G controversy that you should know. Don’t let you be mistaken about the existence of 5G and its current development, huh.
