Terms like 4G and LTE have been tossed around with abandon the past year or so. Every carrier is either touting their LTE network, or promising you’ll have it soon.

Although the blazing fast LTE is still quite far from becoming a widely-available technology, while LTE Advanced is even farther from reaching the consumer market, it doesn’t mean that engineers aren’t looking for ways to come up with even faster data speeds. On that note, Huawei recently announced that they have developed a wireless technology that will enable peak transfer rates of about 30Gbps. This technology is being referred to as “Beyond LTE”. While it is too soon to call it 5G technology, if the limited amount of specs Huawei have detailed for its “Beyond LTE” turn out to be…
