Motorola Mobility, Qualcomm, Samsung and Verizon have joined forces to present 4.2 Gbps as the current limit of peak 5G transfer speed. Verizon has issued a statement about this technology being available to the general public in 2020.

By making use of carrier aggregation (technology which joins several channels to provide more efficient data transmittal over wireless networks), four companies mentioned above have been able to demo 4.2 Gbps on an upcoming Motorola phone.

The test took place at a regular network site in Texas, with achieved aggregation of 800MHz  within the 28GHz spectrum, all coming in through Samsung 5G NR 28 GHz Access Point, which was provided by Verizon. There aren’t any details in regards to the Motorola’s phone used for this demo, however it is known that it is a flagship phone coming with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Mobile Processing unit, featuring Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System.

This demonstration shows the capability and capacity of 5G networks in its full potential. It is expected for the peak speeds to be surpassed as new hardware is coupled with innovations in software development, but regardless, we are definitely getting our money’s worth when it comes to 5G networking.
