We’ve seen GPRS become EDGE, we’ve seen EDGE become 3G, we’ve seen 4G and 4G LTE but is the world ready for 5G?

Ericsson-LG showed the world what 5G could be like in Korea last Thursday. It was the first time the network equipment manufacturers showcased their network in Korea and boy did they showcase their network. The 5G network equipment used for the demonstration offered a peak download speed of 26 gigabit per second, around 350 times faster than the current Long-Term Evolution network.

“I feel proud of the Ericsson-LG researchers at the Anyang R&D center who are contributing to achieving technical innovation for both Korean and global customers,” said Patrick Johansson, the chief executive of Ericsson-LG in Anyang City where the demonstration was held.

He also added that the company would work together with Korean telecom firms for further promoting the 5G network.

“Ericsson, which marks the 140th anniversary of its foundation this year and introduced the first magneto telephone switch and a telephone in 1896 in Korea, has been playing a leading role in the Korean telecom market,” said the CEO.
