Qualcomm may have just blown our minds with the first 5G modem, but it wasn't finished with the announcements during its 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong, where it announced it's teamed with Netgear, Ericsson, and Australian telco Tesltra on the Netgear Mobile Router MR1100.
Netgear's new Mobile Router MR1100 is the first mobile hotspot to support 1Gbps LTE speeds, thanks to a combination of Qualcomm's Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, MIMO technology, 3X carrier aggregation, and Higher Order Modulation 256 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM).
Australia, with its piddly download quotas, will be the first country to have the 1Gbps-capable MR1000 router in operation, through Telstra who say that it should be running "in the coming months". Qualcomm will be baking the new LTE modem into its next-generation Snapdragon processors that will power devices throughout 2018 and beyond.
