5G in India, difference between 4G and 5G network coverages

There is huge differences in the process of network coverages or in other ways the process through which network signals of 5G and 4G works.

In rural India, we still see that a single tower covers almost 5 kms radius of 4G network. But now in 5G that will have to cut down to at least 1km. This is how 5G works. For that matter in urban areas, the radius will be further cut down to a tower for coverage after every 200 to 300 mts. This we consider will be a big challenge for service providers.
