5G is coming... faster, with more space and it will be everywhere
Chinese mobile giant Huawei reckons that 5G will be 100 times faster than fastest 4G LTE standard currently available.
It's estimated 5G technology will offer upwards of 1,000 times the capacity of 4G
Huawei, for example, believes that "5G radio access will be built upon both new radio access technologies (RAT) and evolved existing wireless technologies (LTE, HSPA, GSM and WiFi)."
That being said, various entities working on potential 5G network standards, including Samsung and researchers at New York University, have come up with the idea of utilising millimeter-wave frequencies.
This frequency range lies between 3 to 300MHz, which is much higher than current network standards. The main advantage of using this frequency range is that it's scarcely used by other broadcast technologies.
