Good news for netizens. UK researchers have achieved record-breaking speeds of 1Tbps during tests of 5G data connections
This has been done by the researchers at the University of Surrey’s 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) managed speeds of 1 Tbps — thousands of times faster than current data connections.
Advantages of high speed
At 1Tbps, it would be theoretically possible to download a file 100 times the size of a feature film in about three seconds. The speed is more than 65,000 times faster than average 4G download speeds.
Earlier, Samsung Electronics has set 5G speed record at 7.5Gbps, which is less than 1% of the Surrey team’s speed.
The director of the center Rahim Tafazolli said, they have developed 10 more breakthrough technologies and one of them means that the speed can exceed 1Tbps wirelessly. This is the same capacity as fibreoptics but it has been done wirelessly.
The tests were conducted in lab conditions over a distance of 100m. It, however, remains to be seen whether it will be possible to replicate the speeds in real-world conditions but Tafazolli hopes to demonstrate the technology to the public in 2018.
