Tele2 tests 5G in the Baltics

Monday 15 August 2016 | 16:32 CET | News
Mobile operator Tele2 Estonia, in cooperation with Nokia, has tested pre-5G technology, achieving speeds of 4.5 Gbps. Tele2 plans to start installing special equipment from Nokia on its base stations in 2017. However, it will take three to four years before it expects to provide 5G services for end-users. Sister company Tele2 Lithuania has also carried tests using the AirScale Radio Access equipment from Nokia.
