Samsung: Forget 4G, 5G Is "Hundreds Times Faster"

By Oonagh Reidy | Tuesday | 14/05/2013

"No limitations": If you thought 4G was fast - listen up. Phone king has made 5G breakthrough.

Samsung has made a vital breakthrough for "ultra-high-speed" 5G technology by developing the first adaptive array transceiver technology operating in the millimeter-wave Ka bands for super fast cellular communications, it announced. 

5G mobile networks provide data transmission "up to several hundred times faster than current 4G" or even 4G LTE Advanced due for launch this year, Samsung said in a blog.  

"Samsung's new technology will allow users to transmit massive data files including high quality digital movies practically without limitation." 

Users can watch 3D movies, games, real-time streaming of ultra high-definition (UHD) or 4K content, and remote medical services.

Although 4G Long Term Evolution networks are taking off globally (Telstra already has over 2 million 4G customers) but technology doesn't stand still.

In a recent interview with CN, JB Hi Fi Marketing Manager Scott Browning said the development of 4G LTE Advanced and 5G mobile technologies are "already underway."

There has been fears over 4G's ability to chew up Internet data at an unprecedented rate leading to higher mobile bills, but there are now bill management systems in place and plans are "very generous", he said

Once commercialized, 5G technology will be capable of ultra-high-speed providing a ubiquitous experience to subscribers anywhere with speeds of up to several tens of Gbps per base station. Wow.  

Samsung believes its latest innovation will kick start the race for 5G technology leadership and trigger international alliances in the search for the next big thing in networks, but competition for tech leadership is getting "increasingly fierce" it warned on its Tomorrow Works Blog.

And it could be a 5G battle between China V Europe. 

China started 5G research in February 2012, while the European Commission also plans to invest 50 million Euros this year alone to introduce 5G services by 2020.
