5G Will Let You Download 1GB File In 3 Seconds – QualcommWe are in the 5G zone and a new Internet experience waiting to be unleashed. Along with Samsung, Nokia, Alcatel etc in the 5G arena, Qualcomm is also pushing hard to bring 5G mobile telephone to you and me.While who will be first to bring the technology to users is anybody’s guess, Qualcomm showed what it can do with 5G tech at the recently concluded CES 2017 at Las Vegas, United States.
Qualcomm showed off to the gathered audience about the different ways it’s going to deliver better performance using 5G technology. Qualcomm CEO, Steve Mollenkopf, also shared interesting titbits in his keynote address at the CES gathering.
In his keynote, Mollenkopf said that 5G isn’t just the next version existing 3G and 4G technologies but a whole new ball game in the field of mobile telephony. Mollenkopf said that 5G will be the key driver of the new age technology like VR live-streaming, autonomous cars, connected townships, etc.
According to him, 5G is expected to change the entire industry as it’ll increase the data speeds and reduce the associated costs. Apart from these benefits, the best thing about 5G is its low latency compared to 3G and 4G which will help users achieve many unimaginable and mission critical operations. Moreover, Mollenkopf said that 5G will have an impact similar to the introduction of electricity or automobile and “affect entire economies and benefiting entire societies.”Higher data speeds means more than faster downloads, it’ll make mobile #VR happen. #5G #CES2017 pic.twitter.com/KYlpmDM9Px— Qualcomm (@Qualcomm) January 6, 2017
