5G stands for ‘5th generation mobile network’. 5G creates opportunities to connect almost anything and everything from fridges to garages, all thanks to this generation's massive improvements in wireless technology. It will also make doing faster; faster download speeds, faster upload speeds and more reliable streaming quality.
You can start getting ready now by buying a 5G ready device. When 2degrees 5G launches you'll need a 5G capable device, a plan with 5G included and 5G coverage.
There are a few rumours swirling around about 5G turning sheep into washing machines, and generally flipping things upside down. While some of these concerns are perhaps farcical, at 2degrees we take security seriously. Like 2G, 3G and 4G before it, 5G technology has been rigorously tested by independent organisations to make sure it doesn’t impact the health and well-being of Kiwis.
Here’s a list of international websites who can provide more information:
