Expect that increased speed you’ve always wanted.
While 4G network is still quite new in some areas, its era of being at the top of the internet speed chart may be coming to an end soon. This is considering the fact that the world is already moving towards 5G internet.
The hardware specifications for the Non-Standalone (NSA) 5G New Radio (NR) standards have been officially approved by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). The confirmation of the specifications came about during a meeting of the group in Lisbon, Portugal.
Earlier, in November, Qualcomm, ZTE and China Mobile announced a successful test of the world’s first end-to-end 5G NR interoperable system based on the standards developed by the 3GPP group.
The implication of this is that Qualcomm, Intel, Huawei, and other smartphone hardware Companies can now begin to manufacture 5G wireless components based on the approved specifications. Already, in India, plans are on to roll out 5G internet services by the year 2020, and the Government has set aside a budget of Rs 500 crore for research and development of 5G technology.
The launch of 5G would bring internet speeds to a whole new level, and many are really looking forward to it.
