Magyar Telekom has showcased Hungary's upcoming 5G technology.
The telecom firm demonstrated the first 5G connection in Hungary in Budapest earlier this week, which will be available to the public in about 2 to 4 years time.
According to BBJ, CEO Tibor Rékasi said that the new technology combines the advantages of fixed-line and mobile communication and is expected to bring considerable development in healthcare, transportation, education, and industry.
The CEO said that 5G technology is expected to become available to the public in Europe, including Hungary, by 2020-2022.
During its demonstration, Magyar Telekom showcased a real-time remote healthcare diagnosis and a drone rescue operation through the established 5G connection.
The new 5G network is set to increase Internet speeds, provide more secure and reliable connections, and bring down costs.
