Telefonica, Nokia, Samsung hit 1Gbps in pre-5G demo

Monday 9 July 2018 | 14:43 CET | News
Telefonica and its partners Nokia and Samsung have deployed 4.9 LTE Advanced Pro (pre-5G) technology over a commercial network in the city of Segovia, hitting speeds of over 1Gbps using 3 licenced spectrum bands. The trial is part of the company's 5G Technological Cities project announced earlier this year to roll out and test 5G infrastructure in Segovia and Talavera de la Reina over the next three years. In a statement, Telefonica said it used existing Nokia AirScale base stations and Samsung S9 and S9+ smartphones to test the 4.9G network in real surroundings.
