South Korea Investing £900m to Develop 5G Network
It’s no secret that Samsung has been at the forefront of technological development in the digital age, evidenced by a large market share of mobile devices thanks to its expansive Galaxy device. Naturally, its home country – South Korea – has benefited largely from these advances, and is poised for yet another breakthrough with the development of 5G technology. The country will invest up to £900m for development ahead of a test deadline, which is set for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Supposed to be immensely more powerful than existing 4G technologies, 5G could increase mobile data capacity by as much as 25 times between now and 2030.
