In Canada, new 5G services have been deployed which has increased carrier speeds across the country. In a recent report by Opensignal, which monitored the 5G capabilities of 144 network operators, it was shown how much the top three carriers in the country have improved.
Bell, Rogers and Telus lead the way in Canada as the top network carriers and have placed high on the list among the global elite 5G companies. Rogers ranked the highest at 14th, while Bell and Telus placed 21st and 22nd in the rankings.
The improvements on geographical reach of 5G in Canada have improved dramatically, it is not just dense cities that have seen an increase in speed, less populated areas like Nova Scotia have also benefited from the outreach.
Unfortunately, despite the improvements, prices are yet to be lowered and are currently limited to high-end plans. But this expansion in the network means that it’s only a matter of time before consumers and industries will be able to enjoy the lighting quick service. Here are three of the top industries that will reap the rewards of 5G.
Online casinos are booming and showing no signs of slowing down, the implementation of 5G will only help boost this growth. The user interface on gambling sites is very important, they help appeal to the customer and make their experience a smooth one, and users will see a huge speed improvement in navigating the website. Some of the best online casinos offer a plethora of visually stunning games but, as a result, they are more graphically demanding. The low latency provided by 5G means that you will not have to sacrifice any visual experience and can enjoy these games the way they were meant to be played.
It will also benefit live sports betting enthusiasts, who can get a bet down quicker instead of missing out on the action because of a poor connection.
The healthcare sector is one of the most important in the world and any slight improvement in it is hugely important. 5G allows patients who cannot receive the required care in their vicinity to communicate with specialists worldwide.
It has even allowed Chinese cardiologist Huiming Guo to assist in remote heart surgery from over 400 kilometres away. Due to the high-risk nature of this surgery, it was only possible with a 5G connection, ten times faster than the 4G currently being used.
Autonomous cars are the future, we have seen it with Tesla and there is no doubt that this is one of the most exciting innovations of the 21st century. The emergence of 5G will benefit self-driving cars to no end and take us one step closer to a futuristic dystopia.
This will also improve or even potentially eradicate traffic jams by monitoring live traffic and controlling traffic lights manually instead of systematically. Plus the ability to track a vehicle’s minute movements in real time will only help companies like Uber improve and become more efficient.
The emergence of 5G is a huge leap forward for a society which relies so much on technology. It will only be a matter of time before 5G is not just freely available in Canada but worldwide.
I’m not usually all that critical when it comes to battle pass skins–eight completely unique and multi-style skins for 950 V-Bucks is the sort of deal that’s always gonna make me happy. But even by my relatively relaxed standards, the Chapter 4 Season 1 battle pass is a great one, without a bad skin in the bunch.
On top of that, this pass breaks us from the monotony of the past year of Disney/Marvel battle pass collaborations, going instead with a pair of much-anticipated Gaming Legends skins. And for the first time since Chapter 2 Season 6, we have a tier 100 skin that isn’t a collaboration.
It’s not a perfect pass by any means–it could certainly use more diversity, for one thing, and it doesn’t feel like either of the gaming collabs is quite as awesome as the Lara Croft outfit that also came with the Chapter 2 Season 6 pass (more on that later).
That said, this pass features eight outfits that are all worthy of spots in your regular rotation. But they can’t all be the best. So let’s look at which of Fortnite’s Chapter 4 Season 1 battle pass skins are truly the best, in our oh-so-humble estimation.

WhatsApp has started rolling out 3D avatars for its users around the globe that can be used as profile photos or custom stickers — months after their debut on Instagram, Facebook and Messenger.
On Wednesday, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook that avatars are coming to WhatsApp. The announcement follows a months-long beta testing that was first reported by WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo in June.
In a blog post, WhatsApp said that users could use personalized avatars as their profile photo or choose from one of 36 custom stickers reflecting different emotions and actions. Avatar stickers on WhatsApp look similar to Snap’s Bitmoji or Apple’s Memoji stickers.
“Your avatar is a digital version of you that can be created from billions of combinations of diverse hair styles, facial features, and outfits,” the company behind the popular instant messaging app said.
WhatsApp also said that users would get style enhancements including lighting, shading and hair style textures over time.
Users will be able to create their avatars on WhatsApp — once rolled out — by going to the Settings menu. The messaging app will also get a ‘Use Avatar’ option in the profile photo settings to let users make their virtual lookalike as a profile photo, per the details available on an FAQ page.
In 2019, Meta introduced Bitmoji-style 3D avatars to Facebook and Messenger. The initial rollout was limited to markets including Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Canada, though the social networking giant later expanded its presence to the U.S. in 2020. Instagram also received avatars in late January.
WhatsApp confirmed to TechCrunch that, at the moment, you cannot use your WhatsApp’s avatar on Instagram or Facebook, nor can you use your Meta avatar from Instagram or Facebook on WhatsApp. This means that to use an avatar on WhatsApp, you need to create a new avatar within WhatsApp only.
