Nokia announced a world record for data transfer speeds in 5G networks

The company claims to be able to reach 4.7 Gbps per second during tests on base station equipment.
Finnish company Nokia said it has set a world record for data transfer speeds in 5G networks. This was reported by the company press service on Tuesday, May 19.

“Nokia today announced the achievement of the highest 5G speeds on its wireless network in Dallas, Texas. Using the 800 MHz commercial 5G millimeter wave spectrum and EN-DC dual-connect technology, 4.7 Gbps was achieved during tests conducted on the equipment of base stations that are installed in commercial networks of major US carriers, “it was informed.

According to the company, this speed is the highest achieved so far with the use of dual-connection technology (when a mobile device with a 5G module can simultaneously connect to LTE and 5G networks).

Recall that earlier in South Korea counted five million 5G users. This technology in the country began to be used less than a year ago. Every day the number of subscribers continues to grow.

It was also reported that 5G appeared on Everest. The 5G standard mobile communication base station is built at an altitude of 6500 meters above sea level.
