Amazon Enters 5G with AWS Private 5G

WLANs have transformed Internet connectivity in a way that was only in imagination up until the past decade. But connecting devices to fast-speed and reliable Internet is not the only ask that a user has. There’s still lots of room for improvement in the way connection and communication happens and 5G is the way to that. The 5th generation mobile network one-upped WLANs in their game by introducing the users to an even higher capacity network. 5G combines the trifecta of speed, range and portability to present an Internet connection which is faster and more reliable than all former generations.
