5G connectivity is extremely fast. The speed of a 5G connection allows you to download whatever you desire 10x or even 20x faster when in comparison to the current 4G network. Hence, you will be able to get a real time experience from a remote surgery or automated travel systems.

In addition, it is also a notable advancement that the download and upload speed are also much faster than a 4G connection, becoming a more effective mean of communication during natural disasters. Moreover, the 5G network will also create paths for wholly new digital services.

Currently, no devices or phones that support 5G are non-existent in the markets. However, the larger tech companies are already working on manufacturing and testing such devices. 

Pledges made by Dhiraagu for the future 

The world is becoming more and more digital day by day. It is the aspiration of all Maldivians that the Maldives is updated with all the newest developments in the market of technology along with all the prosperous and larger countries.
