Mark.JUK writes: "The government of the United Kingdom has established a new £35 million partnership between international mobile phone operators, telecoms equipment makers and the University of Surrey (England) that looks set to help research and develop the 5th generation of ultrafast mobile broadband (5G) products and services.

At this stage it's still far too early to know precisely what any official 5G standard could end up looking like, although top transfer speeds of 10 to 100Gbps (Gigabits per second) are being debated."
