You'll have to wait a handful of years for it but it sounds like 5G mobile broadband will be worth the wait. Instead of the 50 to 100 Mbps connections of 4G networks, 5G could top out at 20 Gbps.
That's fast enough to download a ultra-high HD movie on a mobile device in 10 seconds, says the Korea Times, reporting on the new 5G definition being adopted by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
While the promise of faster mobile broadband speeds is alluring for how we use tablets and smartphones today, it will have an added benefit for non-traditional connected devices. The Korea Times reports 5G networks can "provide more than 100 megabits-per-second average data transmission to over one million Internet of Things devices within 1 square kilometer."
