Chasing drama and brushing videos have to go outdoors, which may be an experience in the early 5g era, because signals can only be found outdoors. I want to stay at home and use 5g mobile phones to chase dramas, and feel the super fast Internet speed and video seconds on. However, it may be a little difficult for otaku men and women to realize this beautiful scene. The reporter recently found that although 5g speed is much faster than 4G, it is not easy for the signal to enter the home at this stage.
Because 5g network has the characteristics of higher transmission speed, faster response time and wider connection range, it has been widely expected by the society. The Ministry of industry and information technology issued 5g commercial license, and China officially entered the first year of 5g commercial. Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other 50 cities will take the lead in realizing 5g network coverage. For users in these cities, it is lucky to experience 5g first, but I’m afraid the experience effect is not ideal at this stage.
This is mainly because there is a process of 5g base station construction, and the coverage of 5g network can only be gradually expanded. In areas that cannot be covered at this stage, users can not enjoy the dividends brought by 5g. Moreover, in the area covered by 5g network, the reporter found that there are two different experiences indoors and outdoors – walking outdoors, the signal swings, while the indoor signal basically disappears. In other words, in the coverage area, users can only use 5g fixed outdoors.
Obviously, both for individual users and unit users, they rarely use 5g on the street. They use 5g indoors most of the time. At present, there is almost no 5g signal indoors. In addition, at present, the number of 5g base stations is small and the user experience effect is poor, which hinders the development of 5g. For example, many users do not handle 5g business temporarily because they can’t use 5g indoors and can’t share 5g construction cost, which will affect 5g progress.
The reason why 5g signal is “difficult to enter the house” is that the frequency of 5g is extremely high, and the higher the frequency of electromagnetic wave, the shorter the wavelength, the faster the attenuation, and it is easier to be shielded by obstacles. This means that it is difficult for 5g to cover indoor signals only by outdoor base stations, and indoor sub equipment (equivalent to 5g indoor micro base stations) is also required to distribute signals relatively evenly indoors. So, who should bear the cost of indoor signal coverage?
If the price of relevant equipment is high in the future, it may not care for unit users, but it will be an expense for household users. If the user pays the bill completely, it will also delay the development of 5g. Therefore, only when operators bear the cost of indoor signal coverage and do not increase the economic burden of users, can more users be willing to use 5g network and accelerate the pace of 5g construction.
At the same time, if the 5g base station faces resistance to entering the residential area, it will also affect the pace of 5g development. At present, residential communities are 3G and 4G base stations. If residents use 5g in the community, they must allow 5g base stations to enter the community. From the past situation of Telecom base stations entering the community, the vast majority of residential communities support it, but a few residents oppose the construction of base stations or the demolition of existing base stations on the grounds that the radiation of Telecom base stations affects their health.
In order for the 5g base station to enter the residential area smoothly, the “radiation fear” must be eliminated. On the one hand, it is to popularize China’s relevant national standards and other national standards; On the other hand, the electromagnetic radiation monitoring information of each base station in the community is regularly disclosed to dispel the concerns of residents. Last year, Jiangxi made legislation to ensure the disclosure of this information, which is of exemplary significance.
In other provinces or at the national level, it is also necessary to provide legal support around 5g base stations. At the same time, the Ministry of industry and information technology or the headquarters of the four major operators or local governments need to make unified arrangements. The ultimate purpose is to reduce users’ cost of using 5g and improve users’ experience of using 5g network, so as to strengthen promotion, let more users enjoy 5g dividends and provide support for 5g construction.
