Forget 4g Lte, 5G is in the works and will be super fast
It's time to forget 4G and LTE: Samsung says that the future cell network we should all be drooling over is the intensely fast 5G network, which Engadget reports can pull down a jaw-dropping 1Gbps.
The prototype demonstration, which was initially covered in YonHapNews, utilized 64 antenna elements to transmit using a 28 Gigahertz waveband. In plain English, that means that the cluster of antennas were able to create a real-time stream of data.
So when can we expect to feel the future? Samsung hopes to roll out the service in 2020, but there's no specifics on where 5G will be showing up.
It will be the fastest thing around and will mean that your phone network will be close to what you can get at your home! It will be great to see when this comes around.
