How does Nuvera 1 Gig compare to 4G or 5G from a wireless company?
Wireless companies offering 4G/5G refers not to speed, but to the technology they use to deliver the service. 4G/5G refers not to speed, but to the technology they use to deliver the service. 4G/5G translates to 4th or 5th generation cellular network. The cellular wireless connection is not dedicated to your home like fiber, rather it's a shared connection at a nearby cellular tower on the same network that runs phone services. Since it's a shared connection, you can encounter buffering and slowdowns if the network use is high. Current 4G networks promise 25 Mbps speed, which is the federal minimum for broadband. Nuvera's 1 Gig is equivalent to 1000 Mbps.
Fiber Gig-speed is enough speed to have 100 people in your home all streaming a moving with no buffering. If you have 100 Mbps from Nuvera now, 1 Gig is 10 times faster.
