Will the expansion of 5G affect how websites are built?

Apr 21, 2023 | Industry News

By the year 2027 5G is forecasted to cover 75% of the world. 5G is over twice as fast as 4G and will dramatically change the web design landscape. Practices and designs that we have avoided in the past will now be doable with faster networks. Video backgrounds, animation, 3D renderings, interactive maps, and more.

Currently most speed test websites assume that the majority of users will be on a 3G network, but as 3G is retired and replaced with 4G and 5G networks, the stripped down, basic versions of websites that were required to load over 3G networks will no longer be necessary. Still needing to be optimized for the mobile screen and the mobile browser, but no longer the slow 3G network. The future looks fast!
