T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray shares some early 5G trial results

T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray today appeared at a meeting of the Competitive Carriers Association, and while there wasn’t a ton of new info shared, Ray has shared some interesting 5G tidbits.

T-Mobile has been performing some 5G trials with companies like Nokia, Ericsson, and Samsung, and now Ray has shared some of those results. For example, T-Mo achieved speeds of up to 12Gbps with latency under 2 milliseconds, which is pretty speedy.

Other notable results of T-Mobile’s 5G testing include 8×8 MIMO and four simultaneous 4K video streams.

Those are some impressive test results, and they’re sure to get folks excited for 5G. It’s worth noting again, though, that Ray has said before that we shouldn’t expect to see consumer 5G smartphones until 2020. That’s kind of disappointing, but if that 5G network can produce results like the ones that T-Mobile is putting up in its testing, the wait could be worth it.

While we wait, you can check out T-Mobile’s vision for 5G use cases in the video above.
