wow...5G modems!! finally the internet speed we deserve. Had to be MediaTek..theyre never behind in technology
Georgi, 08 Jun 2018Thank u my friend !You're always welcome!
MediaTek is notoriously noncompliant with open source licenses and disrespects the legacy of all the contributors to Android that have given them such a large platform to sell their wares.
To hell with them. If they won't release source in good time and facilitate dev work, they don't deserve promotion, let alone success.
Good news here. Good reporting too.
Thank you GSM Arena.

What offered by 5G is not only speed increase but also lower power, more coverages and adopt better network security (based on ECC). It focuses also on IoT and embedded devices. As I don't want to be left behind in term of technology and data plan getting cheap and cheaper I'd welcome 5G warmly.
Georgi, 08 Jun 2018Hi. I want to ask you a question; because I've noticed that you are a big tech fan . Do you th... moreVery likely imo. I believe the S10 will certainly have 5G built in (just look at Exynos 9820, it's ALREADY 5G ready!)
melvingutierrez, 08 Jun 2018you know thats just is a teoric speed? already"Theoretic" actually.
Assuming the tower communes with just one person. 100% of the speed is achieved (in our case 1 Gbps, or 125 megabytes/1s) so that is not exactly theoretic at all. But knowing there's not only ONE PERSON that belongs to a certain carrier in a given square area. But several hundreds to a few thousands. Your "share" in speed decreases accordingly.
NoahG, 08 Jun 2018 you would not be able to download GTA V (+40GB) with 1Gbps in 1 min. :)Correct. Assuming you got large enough data plan. You would take about 10-15 minutes actually. As that 1gbps is shared among about 1000 people around you automatically. And there's no way (atleast of what I know) to force a tower giving you a "larger share" of reception.
Luxor, 08 Jun 2018But its usage will depend on whether your carrier support it or not. Most carrier will take a ... moreYou have a point.
Plus if you bought a 5G ready phone today or last year, that would be already too old as newer phones come out annualy and carriers will deploy 5G by the year 2020+
SakshamGupta30, 08 Jun 2018Thanks for providing such profoundly interesting trivia! I will admit, that's some ridiculousl... moreYes i would agree with you now.
Having the speed of light in the forests when picking up muschrooms sounds impressive :-)
why would i want 4g/5g/6g or whatever high speed mobile internet if we have to pay so expensive for using them?
i still have my old 3g plan in my country because if i renew iit i will lose my old unlimited 5 mbps plan
Geric.770, 08 Jun 2018Maybe. Huawei Philippines already unveiled the 5G in partnership with our local carrier tonigh... moreWhere did you get that news? As far as I know Philippines is one of the Country that provides slow internet basing on the "Survey" compared to the 3rd World Countries, if phones are capable of providing Enhanced 5G Data speed of service but the Carrier cant offer a better service of internet speed it will be useless. But we're still waiting for a new Chinese Telco Provider to enter hoping this upcoming 2019 as what the President has said.
CptPower, 08 Jun 2018Fastest internet speed in the world: October 2014 World guiness records. In October of 2014,... moreThanks for providing such profoundly interesting trivia! I will admit, that's some ridiculously impressive internet speed, like holy hell. But I was talking about cellular data connections, which is something that we can access from anywhere without the need of fiber optics. In that regard, we have come pretty far.
