Samsung demos 4G, manages 100Mbps at 60kmh

Chris Ziegler

It may not be the 2.5Gbps NTTDoCoMo mustered at 12.5mph, but let's be perfectly frank: 100Mbps at 60kmh (about 37mph) still a heck of a lot better than what we're squeezing out of 3G at any speed. The demo took place on a specially purposed bus at Samsung's "4G Forum" in Korea this week, which also offered 1Gbps data inside the convention's main venue. What exactly does one do with 100Mbps on a bus strolling along at a leisurely 37mph, you ask? Sammy chose to show a live feed from the venue floor, some manner of video-on-demand system, and generic Internet access, all simultaneously -- a nifty trick to be sure, but seeing how even Korea has years to wait for widescale 4G deployment, we can only assuming our grandchildren might have the chance benefit from said tech this side of the pond.
