Samsung is Ready for 5G - Well, by 2020

If you've got a phone in the past few months, you probably are able to surf the web on an LTE network.  Current LTE is darn fast, but is getting slower as more and more people move to this network.  Another downside is the fact that LTE network are still pretty limited to large centers.  Samsung is already pushing forward to 5G where they expect speeds in the neighborhood of 1Gbps... 1000Mbps.  Yeah.  Wow.  They've already demonstrated the tech, but it's still a long way off.  By 2020 we should be rocking this new standard.

LTE might be all the rage right now, but next generation mobile technology is already in the works. According to Korea's Yonhap News Agency, Samsung has successfully tested its 5G platform, pulling down data at 1Gbps in recent tests. The company apparently needed 64 antenna elements to pull the trick off, but says the technology will be available to customers by 2020.
