5G in Singapore by 2020 – What does it mean for businesses?


Singapore has always been identified as the tech hub of Asia. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that 5G technology will be implemented here by 2020, and at least 50% of our city-state is to be covered with 5G networks by 2022. 


What is 5G

5G is the fifth generation of mobile connectivity network, featuring faster download and upload speeds, with wider coverage and better network stability. With that, the possibilities of 5G technology are limitless. Examples of possible services made possible by 5G would be wearable technology that could monitor health readings and alert doctors once an emergency is detected, and driverless cars being able to communicate with each other, sharing traffic data to improve the flow of traffic and make roads safer.


Fast and stable network

With 5G comes quicker connection between mobile add ons to POS and kitchen with no latency or problems with the unstable network, which is the primary concern of most F&B owners when they think of digitalizing their operations with mobile ordering and kitchen management systems.


Gearing up for the future

As infrastructure with network companies are being built up in preparation for the launch of 5G in Singapore in 2020, it would be beneficial for your business to gear up to leverage on this exciting technology once it rolls out. One of the ways would be upgrading your shop’s POS system to a more versatile POS like MegaPOS, which has comprehensive functions and supports mobile add ons/plugins for better mobility, but remain simple to use.
