Europe and South Korea to cooperate on 5G development
The EU today announced an agreement between it and South Korea to work together towards a global definition of 5G and to cooperate in 5G research.

Both sides agreed to deepen discussions in the area of Net Futures (network and communications, 5G, cloud computing), and will work towards a coordinated call for research project proposals, to be launched in 2016.

The EU is saying that 5G won’t just mean faster mobile internet, it will also allow for “new functionalities and applications with high social and economic value.” According to the EU’s infographic, 5G will allow for car-to-car communication, eHealth, connected houses, smart grids, and “apps beyond imagination.” Though we’re sure most people will be won over initially by the prospect of it being faster.

4G is yet to be rolled out everywhere, but the EU is making sure that it is on top of new developments. No-one believes that a standard for 5G will be ready for another year at the very least, but the EU should be at the forefront of developments thanks to this agreement.
