CHERRY Roam 5G U50 is your fastest way to connect to the internet while abroad!

Travel restrictions are being lifted now and many people are excited to go on “revenge travel” to other countries. CHERRY is aware of this so they recently announced a new pocket WiFi that will become your best travel buddy. The CHERRY Roam 5G U50 is currently the only 5G travel pocket WIFI in the market today and covers over 100 countries. Before the pandemic, one of our writers went to Seoul, Korea and was able to experience their 4G device. Her experience was astonishing because she was bracing herself for a slow internet connection, but to her surprise, it was the opposite.

What is the difference between 4G and 5G connection?

The first major difference between 4G and 5G is the speed. A 4G network typically has a speed of around 100 Mbps, while a 5G network can reach the speed of up to 1Gbps, though this varies depending on the internet provider.

Another improvement with a 5G connection is the capacity to handle simultaneous devices. The Cherry Roam 5G U50 can handle up to 16 devices at the same time compared to its previous generation, the Cherry Roam T2 Slim, which is a 4G network travel pocket WIFI and is only capable of sharing the internet connection between 5 devices.

Also, 5G is not only improved in terms of speed, but also in terms of latency. Latency is the amount of time it takes for data to be transmitted between two points in a network, meaning that low latency is good because it provides a fast and responsive network. The exact difference in latency between 4G and 5G is not known, as it will depend on a number of factors such as the specific device and network infrastructure being used. However, some estimates suggest that the average latency of a 4G network can range from 50 to 100 milliseconds (ms), while the average latency of a 5G network is around 10 ms. This is a huge difference between 4G and 5G network latency.

This new technology comes with some disadvantages such as limited coverage compared to the 4G network that is already available everywhere now. Nevertheless, the 5G network continues to roll out quickly in different countries.

With this information, we already know the difference between 4G and 5G networks. So, let’s talk about the new product from Cherry. The Cherry Roam 5G U50 has a 2.4-inch touchscreen LCD travel pocket Wi-Fi that can be paired with the Cherry Roam mobile app to start using the device.

One great feature it has is instant network reselection. It is able to monitor data networks and intelligently switch between the best connection to enjoy uninterrupted internet. It is not just a travel pocket WIFI; it also has a power bank feature. It is packed with a 5,400 mAh battery, which is big for a travel pocket WIFI, so you can use it as a power bank while you are traveling.
