Samsung 5G test results in 1.2Gbps speed
posted by Alan F. / Oct 15, 2014, 12:16 AM
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

Too bad consumers are shackled with data caps.
