Will IMT-2020 Support 20 Gbps, Under Some Conditions?

Will the new International Telecommunications Union IMT-2020 standard, likely to be known by consumers as 5G, will be extensible to 20 Gbps?

Maybe, eventually, as a top end capability, not a minimum requirement.

"As of now, I understand the peak data rate of IMT-2020 for enhanced Mobile Broadband is expected to reach 10 Gbps,” said ITU spokesman Sanjay Acharya. “However, under certain conditions and scenarios, IMT-2020 would support up to 20 Gbps peak data rate.”

ITU-R Study Group 5 will meet on July 21, 2015 to approve a recommendation, which will then become available during the Radiocommunication Assembly in October.”
