ETB and ZTE hit 1.2 Gbps in Bogota 5G trials

Thursday 25 March 2021 | 11:56 CET | News
Colombian operator Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogota (ETB) has joined forces with ZTE to carry out a series of tests of 5G technology using temporary spectrum freed up by the country's Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (Mintic). The trial conducted in the Bogota region using ETB's fibre-optic network and ZTE equipment saw the partners reach download speeds of 1.22 Gbps, some 4 times faster than the maximum speed available over 4G, plus almost immediate latency speeds of 3 milliseconds compared to 456 ms via 4G.
