Creator Of OnLive Wants To Put An End To Overloaded 4G Networks
Estimated reading time: 3 minute(s)
The creator of OnLive has apparently moved on to a completely different field. His new goal is to fix the terribly overflooded mobile connection in the US. If you’ve ever tried 3G/4G in the US you know what I mean. It’s terrible. But it doesn’t have to be. A demonstration to the New York Times showed Netflix HD and 4K videos streaming to at least a half dozen devices in the same room over a local LTE network, a feat the company said would be impossible on current networks. There’s no word from any US carriers about any plans to adopt the tech, but Verizon did say that it was aware of it. In the meantime, Artemis said large scale tests will start in San Francisco later this year, with a commercial launch by the end of 2014. Surprisingly late considering South Korea already has similar technologies in use and is also working on 5G networks.
