UK Funds 5G Mobile Research

Mobile operators, infrastructure providers, and the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund have given the University of Surrey £35 million (about $56 million) to create a 5G Innovation Centre and develop energy-efficient, affordable fifth-generation wireless technologies that would be available commercially by 2020. Standards organizations haven’t defined 5G yet, but it is expected to yield speeds of up to 200 Mbps. Private companies contributing to the research include Huawei, Samsung, and Telefónica Europe.
