Get to know what 4G is on BlackBerry Q5

It is the term used to describe fourth-generation wireless technology. It was introduced in 2008 by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), an agency that defines the specification of 4G technology and previous technologies such as 2G and 3G. 4G is now the higher wireless technology endorsed by most mobile phones in the world.

4G comes with speeds faster than its antecedent 3G. Thus, its emergence extended the use of smartphones. Presently, phone users can do almost the same tasks that were only suitable on computers before the development of 4G.

The best known protocol labeled 4G is LTE and the technologies developed from it (e.g. LTE-A). Usually, people confuse the two terms. For BlackBerry Q5 4G to be adequate, it should be compatible with the protocols used by local wireless service providers.

Why is 4G on the BlackBerry Q5 important?

4G has all the features of 3G at more speed. It allows download speeds of around 14 Mbps up to speeds as high as 150 Mbps, five times more than 3G. And it allows more than ten times the uploading data speeds of 3G, ranging from 8Mbps up to 50 Mbps.

Low latency is another feature, it ranges from 60ms to 98 ms, Even though it’s only a few milliseconds lower than 3G, it is very significant for some use cases including video conferencing or online gaming, and other live interactions.

The rise of VoLTE standard added another advantage to 4g network which is the ability to make phone calls and navigate the internet at the same time, with even more suitable voice quality. All of these advantages are within your reach with BlackBerry Q5 4G technology.

What are 4G bands? And which bands are supported on your BlackBerry Q5?

A 4G band is an interval of frequencies used by telecommunications companies. Why this matters to you? It matters because each telecommunications company uses special bands corresponding to the area. And not all phones support all 4G bands, so you should ensure that your BlackBerry Q5 supports the bands provided in your area.

It’s hard to regularize the bands at the international level, because each government uses different bands for different radio transactions aside from 4g (such as aeronautics and radio broadcasts). Despite this, the ITU segmented the world into 3 regions and bands for each region.

The BlackBerry Q54G-supported bands are:
2, 4, 5, 17 – SQR100-1;3, 7, 8, 20 – SQR100-2;.
