UK Prime Minister has returned from meeting the German Chancellor with a paper which could mean that the United Kingdom and Germany will team up to work on developing the next fast mobile network, 5G.
David Cameron revealed the initiative is 1 of 3 areas that he wants the UK and Germany to collaborate on to pool ideas, share information, innovate, and to lead on the next big ideas in “a world on fast forward”.
UK Prime Minister claimed that the future 5th-generation, or 5G, network will enable a standard movie to be downloaded online in 1 second – at least in the capital of the country. However, the critics point out that in rural areas it will take ages and cost a lot. In addition, in Cameron’s Britain the movie will have to be fit for a 3-year-old and not contain any sex, swearing or witches.
Cameron called it a “prize that researchers all over the world are going for”, talking about the new collaboration between Germany’s Dresden University and UK’s King’s College University in London and the University of Surrey.
Prime Minister added he is eyeing closer German-British partnership on improving EU’s telecommunications single market and getting everyday objects to talk to each other online. He believes that it has enormous potential to change people’s lives, pointing to examples like health monitors of the heart rate or blood pressure. Apparently, it can also enable the government to know how many poor people are not sharing their bedrooms.
David Cameron said that the world was on the brink of a new industrial revolution, and he wanted the UK and Germany to lead it.

|Oh, the non-technical people are talking again. Not only will 5G not be developed by Universities, but patent holders on existing technologies will ensure they receive royalties on any future technology (as it the case with mobile technology and patent trolls). It will be engineers from large Telecom companies, not Universities (without real world experience), that come up with the next standard.|
In addition, the quality of hardware needs to increase a lot higher to get lower returns, and so the cost is not going to be low enough to catch on like they are expecting. It's too late to try and reinvent physics, you have to live within the laws.

|I would be more impressed if they actually had full coverage of the UK with 3G, let alone 4G and 5G. I live in Cornwall only 7 miles from one of its largest towns of Redruth and no coverage at all. And we can forget about Fibre broadband.||
