5G networks look to new frequencies to deliver gigabit speeds
If operators are to build 5G mobile networks with download speeds at 10Gbps and above, they are going to need a lot more spectrum—but getting it won’t be easy.The amount of spectrum allocated to 5G will determine how fast networks based on the technology will eventually become.
