T-Mobile Claims 5G Tests Reach 12 Gbps

T-Mobile and Ericsson today said lab tests demonstrate the power of forthcoming 5G technology. The two firms pushed data speeds to 12 Gbps over a wireless connection, with latency as low as 2 milliseconds, in the 28 GHz band. The companies also conducted a voice call between 4G and 5G networks, and say 8x8 MIMO can transmit four 4K video streams over the network at the same time. T-Mobile and Ericsson expect to continue testing this technology in the lab and the field during the back half of 2016. T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray said, "At T-Mobile, we will put 5G to work for people, like we always have with new technologies. And, true wireless 5G on our network has the potential to change things radically, accelerating long-term trends, creating immersive experiences and increasing mobile productivity and entertainment for everyone." Ray doesn't expect 5G will begin to reach consumers until 2020.

T-Mobile Claims

Very nice and all the whole 5G thing.
When they can finally lay claim for decent coverage, then they can talk.
I get excellent coverage in Ohio with T-Mobile. I have never dropped a call and I get great data speeds. So I don't know what you are referring to. Unless you are a Verizon Shill.

That's nice and all -

The promise of 5G by 2020. But true 4G is 100 Mb/s down. When will they have 4G?

28,000 MHz

All I want to know is, how will 28000 MHz spectrum affect the number of cell sites required to serve that frequency? T-Mobile has made such great strides lately by overlaying 700 MHz LTE on top of their 1700/2100 MHz LTE, but I'd guess with 28 GHz cell sites they'd have to place antennas at every single intersection to give coverage.
