New UK-Germany collaboration will lead research into next-gen internet; Cameron announces £73 million in funding for Internet of Things
UK’s Prime Minister David Cameron has announced plans for the UK to develop the next generation of wireless, 5G internet in collaboration with Germany.
Speaking at the CeBit trade show in Hannover, Cameron said that in the current world of “permanent technological revolution” the UK could not afford to miss out on developing 5G.
“With 4G, an 800 megabyte movie takes around 40 seconds to download; with 5G that would be cut to one second,” said Cameron.
