Samsung 5G test results in 1.2Gbps speed

Samsung 5G test results in 1.2Gbps speed
With U.S. carriers working on enhanced versions of their 4G LTE services, there are tests going on for 5G. That's the beauty of technology, it is always looking ahead. Right now, the turf war is still on as far as the standards for the next generation of wireless service is concerned. For example, Samsung is in the midst of testing its 5G entry. While in a stationary position, the company was able to achieve a mind-blowing data speed of 940Mbps (7.5Gbps). But how fast will Sammy's 5G service run while in motion?

On a racetrack, Samsung drove around at 62MPH while obtaining data speeds of 150Mbps over its 5G pipeline. Samsung's speed of 1.2Gbps made the company the first to achieve such a rate on an uninterrupted and stable basis. Samsung credits the 28GHz frequency for the amazing speed. Usually, that frequency means that the signal has only a short range, but Samsung says that thanks to "Hybrid Adaptive Array Technology," it is able to have this frequency available for longer distances.

There is still plenty of work left before 5G becomes available to consumers. Still, faster data speeds are something to look forward to. You can check out both tests for yourself by watching the video taken by Samsung during both trial runs. Simply click on the video below.

That's great and all, but how about fixing just regular coverage everywhere... City centers keep getting faster and faster while you drive ten miles out and your battery dies with your phone constantly searching for signal...

Samsung a true leader in technology. They really spend too much money in their R & D hence bringing great devices and tech to the world. Kudos

Every company relies on smaller associated companies but credit is often awarded to the major man(Samsung in this case) because its probably the largest investor. like it or not Samsung has greatly been phenomenal lately, tech-wise.

this is result of eu-korea collaboration. for what i know all of korea depend on nsn. probably its nokia or erricson or alcatel who develop that speed. and its not high speed compare to to above three. nokia alone have already achieve that speed with verizon in 2008, and alcatel has already demonstrated more than TB/s speed

That's not on Samsung. Talk to the carriers.

Totally agree with you. Time to get LTE available everywhere and at 20+Mb/s speeds. 1.2 Gb/s in a select few locations is not worth a sack of beans.

Samsung should unregister with FRAND and then charge Apple the ridiculous prices per phone Apple tried to make them pay.

Too bad consumers are shackled with data caps.

You have to find a signal somewhere first....

More opportunity to blow through those data caps and get the carriers into your wallet.

This must be a test in a project where Samsung is partner with NTT, Alcatel, Ericsson, NEC, Fujitsu and Nokia.

Samsung also does R&Ds to benifit other companies and Apple for their own

"While in a stationary position, the company was able to achieve a mind-blowing data speed of 940Mbps (7.5Gbps)." 1000 Mbps = 1Gbps, so 940 Mbps = .94 Gbps or 7.5 Gbps = 7500 Mbps. This is simple metric math.

An astonishing 7.5 Gbps (940 MB/s) connection capped at 5 or maybe 10 GB per month! Lol.
