5G researchers achieve record speeds of 1 Tbps

Tech News  – Researchers at the University of Surrey’s 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) managed speeds of one terabit per second (Tbps) – thousands of times faster than current data connections.

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, ‘BBC News’ reported.

Previously, Samsung Electronics has set 5G speed record at 7.5Gbps, which is less than 1 per cent of the Surrey team’s speed.

“We have developed 10 more breakthrough technologies and one of them means we can exceed 1Tbps wirelessly. This is the same capacity as fibreoptics but we are doing it wirelessly,” 5GIC director Professor Rahim Tafazolli said.

The tests were conducted in lab conditions over a distance of 100m, according to news website V3.
