Much more of VoIP’s potential would be tapped by businesses, thanks to the enhancements that 5G will bring about.
VoIP calls rely heavily on sufficient download and upload speeds. For example, when mobile VoIP users on 4G networks are limited to 12 Mbps upload and 2 Mbps download speeds, they experience unstable and poor call connectivity and clarity.
