Faster Than WiMax: Samsung 4G

On the heels of Sprint's announcement that they will roll out a nation-wide WiMax 802.16 network, which would be capable of download speeds up to 4 Mbps, Samsung announced their 4G would provide blazing speeds of 1 Gbps:

The bus was moving at 60kmph - which you rarely see in real life - but it was proof enough, the Korean giant boasted, as the demonstration included handover between cells. 1Gbit/s is 50 times faster than the current Mobile WiMAX specification, 802.16e. At walking pace, the demonstration moved bits at 1GB/s.
The faster, the better.
