5G technology is likely to reduce “up to 90% of our current power consumption,” as explained by Verizon chairman and CEO Hans Vestberg. 5G may help promote clean energy through the modernization of the electrical grid across the country, which would lead to more efficiency through renewable energy sources. 5G connectivity also enables devices to move more of the processing of data to cloud applications, improving device battery life and overall consumption.
These key areas speak to just some of the potential for the future of 5G technology. The possible speed and capacity improvements will help usher in the Fourth Industrial Revolution through efficiencies across a variety of industries.
