5G and 4G Comparison

A Short comparison of 5G and 4G technologies is given is table below

Technology Data Rates Latency Mobility Support Spectrum Efficiency Users Density Energy Efficiency
5G (NR) Avg 100 Mb/s Peak 20 Gb/s  ~ 1 ms > 500 Km/h x3 Better
DL- 30 bits/Hz UL- 15bits/Hz
 1000K/square Km x100 Better
4G (LTE) Avg 25 Mb/s Peak 300 Mb/s  ~10- 50 ms Upto 350 Km/h DL – 6 bits/Hz UL- 4 Bits/Hz ~ 2K / square Km Moderate
