The Phasing Out of 3G Brings Promise for Energy Efficiency
- Jan 11, 2022 6:35 pm GMT
There have been many pieces on how 5G networks are expanding and the impact that 5G could have on the energy industry. One element that has not been discussed as much is how the expansion of 5G has led to the phasing out of 3G networks and what that could mean for energy.
Despite the contention around 5G networks, the world has moved towards expanding 5G. Beyond the better connectivity and faster speed, a major catalyst for this expansion is that 5G is more energy efficient than 3G. 5G’s comparative efficiency comes from the fact that its infrastructure is made to be more energy efficient and fix the issues in energy consumption with 3G and 4G.
