Your internet speeds will be insanely fast when 5G arrives

When the 5G wireless standard hits the mainstream, our home internet speeds have the potential to be so fast that we'll be downloading 4K movies, games, software, and any other large form of content at a fraction of the time we're used to.

5G is the upcoming evolution of wireless 4G LTE, which is mostly used today for wireless mobile networks. It'll offer incredibly fast wireless communication that can be used for a number of applications outside of mobile networks, one of which is home internet.

At Mobile World Congress this year, Samsung showcased its 5G Home Routers, which achieved speeds of up to 4 gigabits-per-second (Gbps), according to PCMag. That's 500 megabytes-per-second, which could let you download a 50GB game in under two minutes, or a 100GB 4K movie in under four minutes.

To give you an idea of how fast that is, the average internet speed in the US as of 2016 is 55 megabits-per-second, which translates to a woeful 6.5 megabytes-per-second.

As PCMag's Sascha Segan points out, however, Samsung's router was right next to the transmitting 5G cell at the time of the demonstration. That means those speeds are probably only possible in a perfect scenario, where the 5G router is extremely close to the 5G radio cell without any interference, obstacles, or network congestion.

Still, even with 50% of that performance, we could be experiencing 2Gbps speeds at home. And even 1Gbps — 25% of the perfect scenario — would be great compared the US internet speed average.

Gigabit internet speeds aren't new, but they're extremely rare to come by. There are just a handful of ISPs that offer Gigabit Internet in just a few parts of the US, largely because it's incredibly expensive to lay down infrastructure. It involves digging up roads to install miles of fiber optic cables and connecting them to your specific address.

The best part about wireless 5G millimeter waves is that ISPs don't have to build costly infrastructure to deliver those insanely fast speeds. Instead, your internet service will be delivered wirelessly through the air, much like your mobile network for your phone.

How does it work?
Samsung's 5G Home Router will use an antenna installed outside of one of your home's windows, which is connected to a WiFi router inside your home. That antenna will pick up one of 5G's "millimeter wave" wireless signals that are transmitted from millimeter wave cell towers.

We've actually seen this technology before from a startup called Starry, which is currently in the testing phase in Boston. 

Hurry up and wait.
You can't buy it yet, but the technology is here, and now it's a matter of when this 5G millimeter wave technology will become mainstream. 

We're essentially waiting for ISPs to begin rolling out 5G. At the moment, Verizon is testing 5G in a few parts of the US, and the the overall consensus for mainstream 5G is around 2020.

There's no indication of how much these routers and other equipment will cost, nor how much the internet plans will cost, either. You can get a 500Mbps plan from Verizon Fios at the moment, but that costs $275 per month. 

Here's to hoping Gigabit 5G Internet will be cheaper.

Honda S Dream Streamliner Is Now Fastest Car Honda Ever Made

The Honda and its Honda S Dream Streamliner, which set a brand-new FIA world record for a vehicle in its Category-A Group-1 Class-4 by knocking a normal top speed of 261.875 mph over the flying mile at the Salt Flats. It also affixed a normal of 261.96 mph over the flying kilometer. The Dream Streamliner finished its content using a heavily altered model of the 660-cc three cylinder engine that was designed for the Honda S660. Using that 660-cc engine to set the world speed record remained company’s main objective said by Keisuke Tsuta in a press merchandise.

The record-setting run may have looked uncomplicated as the affixed moment of 261.865 mph over the flying mile was already faster than the 227.776 mph it set on the first day of the fight to end the FIA record. Getting there, though, were to be the strenuous part as the faction moved through every retreat and depression of the S660 engine and worked on its elements to get three times the power than the engine was able of making in capital form.

Several runs soon acted place, including some at the Bonneville Speed Week where the team was unable to come the speed it needed to end the record. Despite all of the contents that the team had in preparing the Dream Streamliner, the vehicle stood gangling when it was finally moment to strive the world record run, not only becoming the swift vehicle in its collection, but also becoming the swift vehicle Honda has ever created, brooding the room Honda F1 race vehicle that knocked a normal top speed of 246.9 mph over the flying mile at the Salt Flats in 2006.

Honda’s record-setting run is a large determination for the company as it reinforces the content within the Japanese manufacturer that it is able of enormous things if it collections its cognition to it. The action is especially more superb thinking all of the difficulties the team encountered along the path. There were issues with the engine, canopy design, with failed strive at Bonneville Speed Week.

All of these difficulties could’ve compelled Honda to elevate its guardianships and call off the whole situation. But it spent on and the phenomenons have certainly made it all worthy it for Honda. And for what it’s worthy, the accepted record normal top speed wasn’t the swift the faction earned during its run. The streamliner actually went fast on one of its advanced runs, coming a normal top speed of 266 mph. Unfortunately, that strive could not be accepted because the vehicle was not able to replicate the speed on its return run as demanded by FIA rules. Honda commodities have triumphed dozens of motorsports championships throughout the world, dominating tournament at heroic locations from Indianapolis to Monaco, and on surfaces being from the seashores of Dakar to the dust of Carlsbad.

But this ago week, a bold team of youthful Honda people acted to the Salt Flats of Bonneville, Utah to position the swift speed ever saved for a honda vehicle. Not only did the Honda position a brand-new FIA World Record of 261.875mph(1mile), 261.966mph(1km) for a vehicle in its collection (Category-a team-1 collection-4), it affixed a speed faster than any Honda-powered vehicle ever including the record opened by room Honda F1 vehicle at Bonneville in 2006, by using a 660cc engine three cylinder designed for the Honda S660 sports vehicle. The project Bonneville Speed Challenge was internally publicized at Honda R&D in Japan in 2015 and 16 associates were appointed from an excavation of 100 servicemen, including the project leader Keisuke Tsuta, to make the vehicle that would be known as the Honda S-Dream, to attain world speed record with 660cc engine.
