5G makes it easier for companies to access cloud technologies and promote business and consumer services. The network allows higher mobile broadband density and lower battery usage and can handle high data volumes with minimal delay. With more data, innovation will intensify and accelerate digital transformation, leading to more goods for consumers.

The efficiency of current applications and websites will be enhanced. Given the renewed drive for digital technology due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many mobile banking apps still lag behind when it comes to functionality. Frequent issues include the slow speed of mobile apps, the frequency of crashes or timeouts, and face ID recognition's poor performance.

5G would make it possible for banks to clean up these inconveniences and have more seamless customer service. Also, upgrading ATMs and kiosks to 5G will provide faster service, allowing people access to their money when and how they want it in record-breaking time.
