Are 5G Services Free Or Paid?

In India right now, 5G services are free of cost. Thus, using 5G costs nothing. To use a 4G network, recharge as usual. There is no extra cost to utilise 5G, even for postpaid customers.

Does 5G Consume More Data?

The answer is both yes and no. Bearing in mind that 5G is faster in comparison to 4G, the download speed is much high. Thus, if you use the exact same amount of data as you do while using 4G, you will not be exhausting your data. However, if you begin using data preposterously by downloading a lot of movies, songs and additional things in minutes, then you will run out of data very fast.

Considering that the data transfer speeds are much higher in 5G, it may result in data vanishing quickly when compared to 4G.

Why Do 5G Speed Tests Exhaust Data?

It is wise to refrain from doing a speed test every time you see 5G on your phone. Otherwise, you will finish your data within minutes. The reason is that apps use larger data packs to test speed, resulting in excessive consumption of data.
