Friday 1 November 2019 | 10:34 CET | News
Spark New Zealand has started 5G service trials on the water for Emirates Team New Zealand. Spark's 5G service covers parts of Auckland Harbour, off Milford and Takapuna, where Emirates Team New Zealand do some of their test sailing. The service enables Emirates Team New Zealand to livestream data and video back to engineers and designers at the base straight off the new AC75 boat, Te Aihe while it is sailing. Real time access to the data is expected to help Emirates Team New Zealand prepare for the America's Cup racing.
