Bell Canada conducts first 5G test with Nokia

Monday 1 August 2016 | 09:13 CET | News
Bell announced that it has successfully demonstrated pre-commercial 5G mobile technology in collaboration with Nokia, claiming a first in Canada. Conducted at Bell's Wireless Innovation Centre in Mississauga, the trial leveraged spectrum in the 73 GHz range to achieve sustained data speeds more than six times faster than top 4G mobile speeds now available in Canada. Bell said it will work with partners elsewhere in North America and the world to further develop 5G. It is already a member of the Next Generation Mobile Networks consortium, the global body helping define requirements for 5G.
