By twisting radio waves into a threaded vortex, an international team of researchers has beamed data through the air at 2.5 terabits per second, creating what has to be the fastest wireless network ever created.

This new, previously untapped dimension of movement allows engineers to still manipulate SAM while layering OAM on top. Researchers from Tel Aviv University in Israel, the University of Southern California, and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory were able to twist together eight different beams of visible light using OAM resulting in 320 gigabytes per second of data transmission. That’s roughly seven Blu-ray movies per second.

I admit that i'm not much of a modern day tech junkie (only ancient world tech) and so i'm wondering how does this technology compare with futuristic 5G?

"...That means--in theory--that an infinite number of these vortex beams could be threaded together to add infinite capacity to conventional transmission protocols."

Let's say I'm skeptical that we'll get that fast in the near future...
But wouldn't that be nice!
