South Korean electronics titan Samsung claims to have successfully tested 5G technology with data transmission rates of more than one gigabit per second over a distance of two kilometres, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

The company said that a 5G network would allow users to “transmit massive data files including high quality digital movies practically without limitation”.

However, the technology, which works by harnessing millimetre-wave bands, won’t be ready for the commercial market until 2020 at the earliest.
