Samsung 5G tests clock speeds, 30 times faster than 4G


SAMSUNG HAS ANNOUNCED that it has clocked the fastest 5G speeds to date, which are 30 times faster than 4G LTE.
Samsung's 5G tests clock speeds 30 times faster than 4GSamsung said that speeds from its 5G trial reached 7.5Gbps, or 940MBps, in a stationary setting, claiming it as an industry first.
Additionally, the firm claimed another first by achieving an uninterrupted and stable connection at 1.2Gbps in a mobile environment from a vehicle travelling at over 100km/h.
Both tests were carried out over a 28GHz 5G network, a frequency that up until now hasn’t been used owing to its short communication range. Samsung says it circumnavigated this by developing its own technology based on millimetre wave frequency bands.
“We will continue to build on these milestones and develop advanced technologies that contribute to the 5G standard,” said Chang Yeong Kim, head of DMC R&D Centre at Samsung Electronics.
“In addition to leveraging our own global R&D capabilities, we will also continue to cooperate with other industry leaders and research centres across the world.

“Whether you are talking about mobile devices, the cloud, or the Internet of Things, the demand for 5G telecommunications standard and its supporting technologies will continue to grow.”
Of course, while Samsung has hit speeds of 7.5Gbps, no standards have yet been set for 5G, and it’s likely that speeds will alter when the technology eventually hits the market.
Huawei previously said that, at launch, it expects to see 5G speeds of around 10Mbps.
According to London mayor Boris Johnson, 5G is set to hit the UK capital by 2020.
