Since our mobile devices are being updated in regular basis, it’s just great news to hear that the newest and fastest network connectivity is near at hand. Yes, although 4G is still something that the developing countries are working at, the International Telecommunication Union (a.k.a ITU) has already announced the next generation of telecommunication network technology.
Presently, the 5G Standard is yet in its developing stage but the telecommunications union has officially announced its existence during the San Diego conference last June 10-18. Expect the 5G’s details and specifications in the very near future. Meanwhile, ITU gave the peak data speed of 5G which is pretty astounding. A leap of 20 times from 4G LTE’s 1Gbps peak can send your heartbeat in erratic speed, right? 5G connectivity accommodates a max of 20Gbps data speed and that simply means that you’re more likely to receive between 10 and 1000 Mbps (a tenfold increase of 4G LTE).
Okay, let’s illustrate the promised benefits of 5G. When you download a full-length HD movie, it may take a few minutes for 4G LTE to process that. Using 5G, it will only take you good few seconds to get the movie you want. Those immaculately vivid video chats you see in movies… well, they’re more likely to be experienced this time.
Exciting? But we may have to wait for a couple of years to experience the latest mobile network. The first exhibition will be held during the 2018 Pyeong Chang Winter Olympics in South Korea. From then, it is expected to roll out somewhere between 2018 and 2020 under the formal name IMT-2020. Further details will be announced in October this year.
