5G has arrived in BH: check the compatible cell phones and neighborhoods where the signal picks up

O 5G signal in Belo Horizonte was released this Friday (29) and the main operators in the market are already operating on the new mobile internet network. For now, only some neighborhoods in the capital have signal coverage and it is only available for 5G-compatible cell phones, listed by the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel).

Until then, some cell phones already showed the 5G signal DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing), which offers a higher speed than 4G, but uses the structure of the old network. Now, the consumer can have access to 5G NSA (“Non Standalone”), which uses the 5G frequency, but still part of 4G, and 5G SA (“Standlone”), the “pure 5G”, which, in addition to having a higher speed, has low latency. That is, the interval between a command on the cell phone and the action is practically imperceptible.

In the daily life of the consumer, 5G represents more download speed. In a 5G simulation offered by Claro, it was possible to compare the speed between 4G and 5G. While the old network scored a speed of 69.6 Mbps (megabits per second), 5G hit 1,497 Mbps in the “Speedtest” measurement app.

Today, the signal was also released in the capitals João Pessoa and Porto Alegre. On July 6, he had been released in the Federal District. The other cities in Minas Gerais will receive the network gradually, starting in 2023, according to the Anatel’s 5G calendar.
