European Commission Investing €50 million into Furthering 5G Research

European Commission

When it comes to 4G LTE technology, Europe hasn’t exactly been ahead of the curve. The good news is that the European Commission doesn’t what that to happen again when 5G technology starts to rollout in the not terribly distant future.

The European Commission is investing around €50 million, or $65.3 million, into research that will hopefully generate the next-generation in cellular technology with a target of the year 2020. About €16 million ($20.9 million) will head towards the ericsson-lead METIS aliance to develop wireless with 10 to 100 times the capacity.

Bottom-line is that Asia and North America were the names that brought 4G technology forward, even though its still not quite standard everwhere. Europe won’t let that happen again, if they can help it.

With 4G already offering blazingly fast connectivity, it is hard to imagine 5G technology. Again, seven years could bring quite a few changes and that could mean apps that are many times larger than the average sizes of files today.
