Each generation of wireless networks has revolutionized the way we communicate. While 1G allowed for wireless analogue phone calls, 2G went digital, introducing the world to texting. 3G made web-browsing and file-sharing possible, while 4G is what enables connectivity for smartphones, tablets and laptops.

However, the significance of 5G is still a mystery to some.
