The electronics giant Samsung has claimed that they have developed an ultra-high speed technology – the 5G technology that could potentially let the users download a film in a second. This new technology was tested successfully.
The new equipment that Samsung used in these tests were also tested successfully. According to the company, the new equipment will download the data literally hundreds of times faster. This data transfer is faster than the currently available download speed of 4G.
This new technology can be used to download digital stuff without any boundaries or be able to watch 3D movies. Even streaming HD (high-definition) programmes in real-time would be possible, the South Korean company said.
However, the entire concept is still in its infancy. According to the company, the services would be available to the customers until the year 2020. Samsung is confident that it is the first company in the world to have a device like a transceiver that provides 5G broadband services.
The developments were made public during the tests conducted for transmitting data up to 2 KMs away at an alarmingly high speed of one gigabit per second. The users who use the 4G services do have an average speed of 8 Mbps to 12 Mbps. This gives an idea of how fast the 5G technology is.
