Samsung to offer 5g by 2020

5g from SamsungWhilst most of us in the UK are still waiting for a 4g service, Samsung have developed a new technology which they say will enable them to offer 5g by 2020.

5g will work faster than 4g and would enable users to download an entire movie in less than one second. Data could be downloaded or uploaded at a speed of 10 gigabits per second (10Gbps), compared with 4g speeds of 75 megabits per second (75Mbps).

Samsung says they have successfully tested the technology using the 28 GHz waveband, where they achieved speeds of 1 Gbps.

It is thought that Samsung's progress in this area will set the standard for 5g and kick starts its development across the globe. China and the EU have already started research into 5g.
