Researchers, including one of Indian-origin, now claim that upcoming 5G wireless networks that will provide faster cell phone service may lead to inaccurate weather forecast.

“Our study – the first of its kind that quantifies the effect of 5G on weather prediction error – suggests that there is an impact on the accuracy of weather forecasts,” said study senior author Narayan B Mandayam from the Rutgers Unviersity in the US.

According to the study, presented at the 2020 IEEE 5G World Forum, fifth-generation cellular wireless technology (5G) stems from new, smarter ways to use the higher (mmWave) frequencies for mobile communications.

This technology will revolutionize internet communication and telecommunication.

It has faster connection times, increases the number of devices that can connect to a network and will be more widely available over the next two to three years, according to the researchers.

The Rutgers study used computer modeling to ...
