[StraitsTimes] Singtel upgrades 4G network top speed to 450Mbps from 300Mbps

http://www.straitstimes.com/tech/sin...s-from-300mbps

Lai liao lai liao... was browsing the straits times and i came across this article fresh from oven.

S7/S7edge users will now enjoy the new speed, but i think a reboot of phone will help to ensure that the new speed profile is migrated..

LG V20 will enjoy the new speed via a software update soon, according to the news article..

Anyone got test out the new speed?

No different in speed.
But important point is the coverage. I think they use the frequency band free up from 2G. Lower frequency has much better coverge especially in shopping area.

Not just that. It's achieved from using a triband carrier aggregation to achieve cat 9 speed..

Tri-band LTE-A 337 Mbps has already been activated since last year.
LTE1800/2600: 150Mbps each.
LTE900: 37Mbps.

LTE-A 450Mbps is reached only with LTE1800/2600 CA + 256QAM, raising each band to 225Mbps. The question is why cannot use LTE900 as well, pushing it to LTE Cat 12/13 speeds, at up to 487Mbps (Cat 12/13 up to 600Mbps).

By year end, singtel will probably launch 5G 1gbps LTE network, which is now already on trial at pasir ris area using 4x4 mimo.

Perhaps there is a better industry advancement this time.

These developments put Singapore one step closer to the next frontier of mobile services: 5G services, which are said to be more than 10 times faster than 4G ones.

For instance, last week, M1 conducted a 5G trial and reached peak surfing speeds of 35Gbps.
So 4GB plan gone in 1 second

Thats right, but mobile network is not just limited to mobile phones or tablets. Singtel is looking ahead in preparing for a smart nation.

The infrastructure is intended more for commercial use such as in the industry of Logistics and Fleet management, where smart trucks are being used to effectively management any potential collision and sustain fuel economy by not slowing down too much.

A short video from Scania can be viewed here:


Also, the 5G network has a much larger bandwidth to accommodate both consumer devices and commercial needs, so it kind of save costs in maintaining 2 different infrastructures.

So 4GB plan gone in 1 second
Chillax, the fast device now available in market is only CAT 12 (600mbps) for purchase, so your 4gb is still likely feasible.

lol so much for the speed upgrade, but still if the area is congested, speed will definitely reduced.
Thats right, thats why we have an expansion to radio spectrum while moving forward.....
