Researchers Discover 5G Zone That is 65,000 Times Faster Than Present 4G
The last discovered 4G internet is still to reach the far-flung areas of the globe and researchers have already found a new 5G zone. According to a report by PTI, researchers at the University of Surrey have successfully tested the 5G data connection that gives a record-breaking speed of 1Tbps (1 terabit per second).
The research was conducted in the university’s 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC), where they managed to reach a speed that is thousand times faster than the present data connection. It is 65,000 times faster than the average 4G speed that we presently fetch. Theoretically, at 1 Tbps, users will be able to download GBs of data in a matter of seconds. In simple words, 100 movies in just three seconds; though for that you’ll need to know the 100 movies you wish to download.
Rahim Tafazolli, the Director Professor of 5GIC, remarked about the technology –
We have developed 10 more breakthrough technologies and one of them means we can exceed 1Tbps wirelessly. This is the same capacity as fibreoptics but we are doing it wirelessly.
The first dig into the 5G segment was done by Samsung, who set the remarkable record of 7.5Gbps. The UK research team took an extensive leap and set a new record of 1Tbps, 1% greater than Samsung’s 5G speed.
The development is most welcome, and we hope that it will give the same rate as it intends to. It is still in testing mode, and the technology is expected to be made public by 2018.
