The research was conducted at University of Surrey’s 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC). The researchers were able to reach a speed that is thousand times faster than the current data connections. And this speed is more than 65,000 times faster than average download speeds (and believe that!).
Theoretically, at this 1 Tbps speed is would be possible to download GBs of data in just a few seconds. In other words 100 movies in just 3 seconds.
“An important aspect of 5G is how it will support applications in the future. We don’t know what applications will be in use by 2020, or 2030 or 2040 for that matter, but we know they will be highly sensitive to latency.
We need to bring end-to-end latency down to below one millisecond so that it can enable new technologies and applications that would just not be possible with 4G,” he told V3.
We want to be the first in the world to show such high speeds”, he said.
