Deutsche Telekom has activated 5G transmitters in Berlin, claiming that these are the first in Europe with a live 5G connection in a real-world setting. The network is achieving throughput of more than 2 Gbps to a single customer device, as well as latency of three milliseconds on commercial sites in the Schoeneberg district, using pre-standard 5G New Radio (5G NR). The network uses frequency in the 3.7 GHz band and equipment from Huawei, with four antennas located across three sites.
