Samsung and Korean mobile carrier SK Telecom are set to demonstrate research in their new ‘5G’ technologies at MWC 2015, which is said to show off speeds up to 7.5Gbps.
ZTE claims that this technology makes it “possible for carriers to provide a 5G-like user experience on existing 4G handsets in an accelerated timeframe.”
According to one professor, 5G broadband will be able to go as fast as 800Gbps.

Tom Wheeler wants to begin investigating frequencies for possible 5G use.
The CTO at Alcatel-Lucent is frustrated with the approach to 5G.
It may come as surprise that ZTE has consistently ranked as high as the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer for global volume and device shipments, and is a major contributor to the 3G and LTE (4G) standards that we enjoy today. What’s next?
In the past, we have discussed the confusion (sometimes intentionally) of what 5G technology actually entails. However, South Korea’s 3 major mobile operators, SK Telecom, kt, and LG Uplus, have plans to introduce commercial 5G technology by 2020-2021.
