The goal of 10-20 Gb/s throughput is extremely ambitious...it will take a while to figure this out how to do it, if it is at all possible...higher frequencies (smaller wavelengths) bring up severe signal attenuation issues so this is not simple scaling of frequencies up and we are done...Kris

I actually see 2020 as a rather modest ambition for 5G. We're supposed to ahve 4G already and it's 2013. If it takes every seven years to update the network, then that's moving at a significantly slower rate compared to what we've had to this point.

That's a good point.  I don't mind paying for data, but I don't want to pay for the advertisements to be downloaded to my phone.  It doesn't matter as much at home where the data is unlimited.  The phone should be too.

Clearly, by the time 5G is rolled out, the carriers will have evolved to a different business model or pricing structure for data. Not many consumers will shell out $10 for 1GB (8 gigabits) when they have a 10 GBPS connection. Imagine that, more than ten dollars per second for data charges!

"What opportunities and challenges do you see with 5G?"

HAH, that's funny, because here in the US, we're still waiting for real 4G!

And the challenges will include ensuring that the carriers to not screw the customers with bandwidth caps and costs, and battery life for handsets.

It is right the data limits will be thirsted very soon at high data rates and you will be paying for the auto refreshing advertisements. But by the time 5G will be operational the net access pattern of people will be different. Also the cost of the services will depend how much the multinational are paying for the research and development of the technology.

At 10gbps, I would hit my data limit pretty quick.  Fortunately, I don't run that many data intesive applications, so I may last until mid month.  I wonder how much more 5G will cost the consumer.

Japan is also after it, along with China and European Commission all are targeting 2020 for 5G implementations. Japan's NTT DoCoMo had announced that it had successfully tested 10 Gbps cellular data speeds last year using an 11 GHz frequency band.

Europe seems to be at the forefront of the 5G movement. It still has a ways to go but the dedication to bringing 5G connectivity to end users is clearly there.

Yes whenever some new development or concept is about to be thought of one will have the skies in the mind and once the thing starts getting developed the sky starts coming towards earth. :), it's a natural phenomena.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
