If I could become a bug, I would. I would get into the Animorphs cinematic universe or put to work to be an animagus in Harry Potter if that meant i could be a fly on the wall in the xfinity offices when they decided which customers what is more, even if they don’t know what it is. And what more than 5G? 10G.
Comcast recently launched its new Xfinity 10G network. Generally, when we talk about 4G or 5G networks, the “G” stands for “generation”, and that’s it.
So a 4G mobile network is simply the fourth generation; same with 5G. Why is Comcast skipping 6G, 7G, 8G, and 9G, and going straight to 10G? Does the Xfinity 10G network twice as fast as 5G? Or is it just a very strange advertising decision?
Well, unfortunately for us, Xfinity doesn’t describe what 10G actually means. Their site just says(opens in a new tab) the new network “provides a powerful connection for our customers who will continue to become smarter, faster, more reliable and more secure”. And he adds that this network is the network that their “customers use today and the network that will power their connectivity experience in the future.”
But as PCWorld found(opens in a new tab) After some research, the reason this is so confusing is that 10G has nothing to do with 5G or 4G or any other kind of cellular network terminology. “10G is a reference to 10Gbps, or the maximum speed that the Xfinity broadband network is capable of,” PCWorld notes, adding that 10G is actually slower than 5G. Amazing work, everyone.
