Telefonica Germany said that its 5G network is now active in over 30 cities with around 1,000 5G antennas, exclusively using the 3.6 GHz frequency range. The company will build a 5G-standalone network, as opposed to a non-standalone, 4G-based 5G network. The operator had picked Ericsson for the 5G core network in 2020 and has already conducted its first test to run a 5G SA network.
