Ericsson Trial 10Gbps 5G Mobile Broadband Network in Japan 53

Mark.JUK (1222360) writes "Japanese mobile operator NTT DOCOMO has announced that they'll make use of Ericsson's advanced antenna technologies and radio base stations in order to conduct one of the world's first trials of a possible 5G based Mobile Broadband technology in Yokosuka (Japan), which aims to deliver downstream speeds of more than 10 Gigabits per second using the 15GHz radio spectrum frequency. But this is just one possible candidate for 5G connectivity and many organizations are still working to try and define an official standard, while most countries don't expect the first services to be deployed until around the year 2020."

    Not to mention all the time spent waiting for the 17 different CDN services to respond to download content, all the time spent waiting for the 23 different ad networks to respond to download content, all the time spent waiting for the various DNS servers to respond with the correct IPs, etc.

    Sure, the actual downloads of the various bits of data is very fast. But that's the shortest/quickest part of loading a web page. And all the other bits and bobs and bottlenecks are the same, regardless of what speed of network connection you have.

If a 6600 used paper tape instead of core memory, it would use up tape at about 30 miles/second. -- Grishman, Assembly Language Programming
