South Korea to launch 5G service so fast users can download an entire film in just ONE SECOND

South Korea is to introduce a blazing fast 5G mobile internet service, quick enough to download a full length feature film in less than a second. While most of the world has yet to experience the improvements offered by 4G services, the technologically advanced country has announced a £900million (1.6 trillion won) in its successor. South Korea's science ministry said it aims to implement the technology, which is about 1,000 times faster than the 4G, within six years.

5G will allow users to download a 800-megabyte movie file in one second, compared with 40 seconds using 4G, the science ministry said, adding that such speeds would help South Korean firms win overseas deals. A ministry spokesman said: 'We helped fuel national growth with 2G services in the 1990s, 3G in the 2000s and 4G around 2010. Now it is time to take preemptive action to develop 5G.' 'Countries in Europe, China and the US are making aggressive efforts to develop 5G technology ... and we believe there will be fierce competition in this market in a few years,' it said.

Under the roadmap, a trial 5G service will be rolled out in 2017 and a fully commercial service in December 2020. Priority will be given to developing key features for the new network, including Ultra-HD and hologram transmission as well as cutting-edge social networking services. Related industries will be able to rack up sales of 5G-related devices and infrastructure equipment worth 331 trillion won from 2020 to 2026, the ministry estimated. The government hopes to implement the plan with investment and cooperation from operators such as SK Telecom and Korea Telecom as well as handset makers like Samsung and LG. It also aims to expand the telecom infrastructure equipment industry, which is relatively weaker than the mighty mobile device sector. Led by Samsung - the world's top handset maker - South Korea has a leading 30-percent stake in the global mobile device market.

'But the (telecom) infrastructure equipment industry has only a 4.4 percent share in the global market, with exports very limited,' the ministry said. Chinese equipment makers including Huawei have expanded their presence in the global market from 12 percent in 2007 to 26 percent in 2012. Huawei announced in November that it was looking at a 5G commercial rollout by 2020, with a minimum investment of $600 million to develop the technology. Seoul intends to take up to a 20 percent stake in the world's telecom infrastructure equipment market by 2020, according to the ministry. New opportunities South Korea is renowned for being at the forefront of internet technology with broadband speeds that consistently out-pace those in Europe or the United States. Officials said the new service would also mean people on bullet trains running faster than 500 kilometres (310 miles) an hour would even be able to access the Internet, compared with 300 kph currently.

'Bullet trains around the world keep getting faster, with some in China running as fast as 500 and 600 kilometres per hour,' said one ministry official who declined to be named. 'If we have the technology to allow fast Internet access in these trains, it can open new opportunities for us globally,' he said. Samsung Electronics announced back in May that it had successfully tested 5G technology, managing data transmission of more than one gigabyte per second over a distance of two kilometres. Samsung said it had found a way to harness millimetre-wave bands which have proved to be a sticking point for the mobile industry to date. The test used 64 antenna elements, which the tech titan said overcame the issue of 'unfavourable propagation characteristics' that have prevented data travelling across long distances using the bands. However, it made clear that the technology would not be available commercially before the end of the decade.

    is this why my 4G antenna keeps cutting on by itself on my Evo?

    are they trying to implement 4G now, well after they promised that there will be 4G available years ago?

    Sounds good, but the average citizen either won't have the equipment to take advantage of such speeds or they won't be able to afford the service. I mean Google offers an internet service in very limited areas that has these super speeds, but the computers that people have simply can't process the speeds so that the user can download and upload at the speeds that are available to them.
