Elisa, Nokia test 3.5 GHz band for 5G

Thursday 13 April 2017 | 10:16 CET | News
Elisa and Nokia tested 5G technology on the 3.5 GHz band, claiming this was a first in Europe. The test took place in Rusko, Finland, on 7 April. Achieved data speeds during the test were multiple times higher than existing commercial 4G-based networks, namely 1.5 Gbps with the lowest latency at 1.5 milliseconds at their peak, the companies said in a press release. In Finland, the 3.5 GHz band will become available on 31 December 2018, after which it will be possible to take it into commercial 5G use.
