VR, AR, AI mobile speeds of 1.8 Gbps
T-Mobile US is talking a lot about network un-carrier innovations including 4G advanced features such as 4x4 MIMO, QAM 256 and QAM 64 but it looks like the company is working hard on 5G too. T-Mobile has already demonstrated mobile speeds of 1.8 Gbps and fixed speeds of 12 Gbps with latency of 2ns. Things look to be much faster and seamless in 2017 and the years to come, Happy New 2017 Year, that gets us a step closer to that.
4×4 MIMO and QAM 256 are the first step in the USA
Back in September, T-Mobile in the US announced that it supports 4×4 MIMO as well as QAM 256 on the download and QAM 64 on the upload side. The first phone to get this support was the Samsung Galaxy S7 and it looks like in 2017, T mobile will get you to 1Gbps class speeds or speeds up to 979 Mbps.
It is finally happening
Telstra in Australia was the first company to launch both 600 Mbps and 1Gbps networks but it looks like T-Mobile in the US plans to launch 1Gbps in 2017 too.
Supplemental downlink and uplink bandwidth

But no one is talking about numbers
