LED Light Bulbs

14th September, 2017 - 10:45 am (3 Comments)

A team working out of Brunel University London has secured £720,000 of funding from Europe’s Horizon 2020 programme in order to help them develop a 10Gbps capable home wireless network using hybrid Li-Fi (Light Fidelity) and mmWave tech inside LED (Light-Emitting Diode) room lights.

openreach uk telecoms engineer with back turned

10th May, 2017 - 8:50 am (13 Comments)

A new Proof of Concept trial in Kent (England) is about to begin that could allow Openreach’s (BT) new ultrafast G.fast technology to share the same spectrum as existing FTTC (VDSL2) “fibre broadband” services, which in the future might help to boost speeds beyond 330Mbps.

broadband internet speed uk

9th May, 2017 - 6:01 pm (9 Comments)

California-based ASSIA, which supplies broadband management systems to ISPs, has today announce that “extreme high frequency sub-millimeter waves” could in the future be used to push broadband speeds of up to 1Tbps (Terabit per second) down a single 100 metre twisted-pair copper line.

spacex rocket launch low earth orbit satellite broadband

4th May, 2017 - 9:59 am (9 Comments)

Rocket company SpaceX has released an update on their plans to launch a global constellation of 4,425 small Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites (a further 7,500 could follow) from 2019, which they claim will support ultrafast broadband speeds of up to 1Gbps and low latency times of just 25ms.


21st March, 2017 - 8:19 am (1 Comment)

Before Bluetooth came along it was quite normal for early portable devices (PDAs, Smartphones etc.) to communicate via a short line-of-sight link using Infrared light. Now scientists at the Eindhoven University of Technology have used a similar approach to deliver a “100 times faster” WiFi style network.

5g verizon trial usa

22nd February, 2017 - 5:52 pm (1 Comment)

Verizon has today announced that in April 2017 they will become one of the first Mobile operators in the world to launch a real-world trial of future 5G technology. Initially this aims to deliver multi-Gigabit speeds via a fixed wireless broadband network to select customers in 11 markets across the USA.


7th February, 2017 - 9:12 am (3 Comments)

A team of Japanese scientists have developed a TeraHertz (THz) transmitter that is capable of transmitting digital data at a rate of 105Gbps (Gigabits per second) over a single channel using the 300GHz band, which they claim could power a future generation of Mobile Broadband and Satellite links.

wireless internet radio spectrum frequency

1st December, 2016 - 12:24 pm (3 Comments)

Researchers from Japan have managed to boost the speed of WiFi data transmissions to 34Gbps (Gigabits per second) by harnessing the 500GHz band of radio spectrum, which falls within the TeraHertz range (300GHz+). Even faster speeds are coming, but distance may be a problem.

fibre optic cables on pcb circuit board

13th October, 2016 - 10:39 am (6 Comments)

Telecoms giant BT and Japanese electronics firm Toshiba have today teamed-up to demonstrate the future of secure data communication via quantum cryptography, which works by delivering secret keys over fibre optic cables via the “smallest possible packets of light.”

wireless internet radio spectrum frequency

4th October, 2016 - 9:00 am (0 Comments)

A recent study from Qualcomm Technologies has concluded that home WiFi (WLAN) wireless networks will need more than double the current amount of radio spectrum (around the 5GHz band) to deliver “sustained” speeds of 1Gbps (1000Mbps+) throughout an entire home.

AirGig Powerline Wireless Broadband

23rd September, 2016 - 1:05 am (9 Comments)

The research and development division of global telecoms giant AT&T has begun to develop a new twist on the old Powerline Communications idea, but instead of sending electrical signals over the national grid’s power cables it would use the cables to “guide” a wireless broadband transmission.


19th September, 2016 - 10:41 am (3 Comments)

A joint team of researchers working for Nokia Bell Labs, Deutsche Telekom T-Labs and the Technical University of Munich in Germany has successfully used a new technology to push 1Tbps of real-world data transfer over a pure fibre optic cable to hit close to its theoretical maximum (The Shannon Limit).


25th August, 2016 - 8:17 am (0 Comments)

Researchers working at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a more efficient way of coordinating multiple wireless broadband routers at the same time by using their new MegaMIMO 2.0 technology, which could deliver three times faster WiFi speeds and double the range.


24th May, 2016 - 8:03 am (6 Comments)

A team of German scientists have successfully achieved a record data rate of 6Gbps (Gigabits per second) over a distance of 36.7 kilometres by harnessing part of the E band spectrum, which operates at a radio frequency of 71-76GHz (GigaHertz). The new development could be used to boost both terrestrial and Satellite broadband capacity links.

5g uk mobile broadband

30th March, 2016 - 10:44 am (0 Comments)

Future 5G based Mobile Broadband networks are expected to be extremely fast (peak speeds of up to 10Gbps), but new EU supported research taking place at the University of West of Scotland (UWS) could also make them “self-healing” to boost performance, protect against DDoS attacks and recover faster from outages.


23rd February, 2016 - 9:36 am (5 Comments)

Most EU and UK telecoms regulators don’t expect the first commercial roll-out of future 5G capable Mobile Broadband services to happen until 2020 or later, but that hasn’t stopped Nokia and Verizon aiming for it to be launched far sooner.. in 2017! Field trials have already begun.
