The online world is forever evolving, and that is continuing with the roll-out of 5G, which is set to come out in 2018.


It is amazing when you think that people are barely getting used to 4G and already, internet speed will be given even more of a boost in just over a year.

Since the introduction of 4G, the number of people using their mobile has grown exponentially. With people migrating their internet usage to mobile rather than desktop, this has created massive opportunities for people wanting to advertise their businesses to a broader range of people.

The roll-out of 5G is likely to further increase the number of people wanting to consume information via mobile, which means now is as good a time as ever to get on board with the mobile revolution.

It is estimated that by 2020, there will be 20.8 billion devices connected, compared with 6.4 billion now. This represents a massive opportunity for growth for people and businesses to get involved with mobile advertising.

It is not just the speed that makes this such a great chance for advertisers to get involved in the mobile world. There is a very high capacity on 5G, which means that high quality video could be used, as well as virtual reality, via mobile.

It will create a more interactive experience for users, which will give advertisers even more access to their customers, and there are no reasons why local businesses shouldn’t take advantage of that as well.

Virtual reality on mobile could make the way we use our smartphones now to seem old-fashioned and that way of using technology could be obsolete in just a few short years.

The sky is the limit for what 5G could mean for mobile advertising for local businesses, so get prepared now while you can!
