Bouygues Telecom announces live 5G testing in Lyon

Monday 27 January 2020 | 12:59 CET | News
French operator Bouygues Telecom said that its staff had progressed to a new stage in the 5G pilot taking place in the Lyon metropolitan area, starting live testing with commercially available devices. Lyon has been chosen because the roll-out of 5G antennas is already advanced, said the company, adding that this new trial phase will last a few months. Around 50 users will participate in the tests, using 5G-enabled smartphone models of different brands, such as the Xiaomi Mix 3, Oppo Reno, and Huawei Mate 20x.
