However, existing 4G LTE technology can only be upgraded so far, and now, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has released a draft report detailing the specifications of the next-generation 5G technology.
The new technology boasts a very interesting specification-sheet. A 5G cell will be able to handle a downlink of at least 20Gbps and an uplink of 10Gbps via a single mobile base station. It is worth noting that these are theoretical speeds for a single user if they have a fixed wireless broadband, and in reality, all users on a cell will get a portion of that 20Gbps.
