In a 5G outdoor trial conducted in Kista, Sweden using 800 MHz of spectrum in the 15 GHz band, Telia and Ericsson achieved peak rates of 15 Gbps per user and a latency below 3 milliseconds.

Ericsson said this marks an important milestone in our companies’ joint roadmap for 5G in Sweden and Estonia announced in January, with the goal to let Telia customers in Stockholm and Tallinn experience 5G services already in 2018.

Mats Sv√§rdh, Head of Networks & IT Infrastructure, Global Services & Operations, Telia Company says: “This is a great achievement and stepping stone towards taking 5G to our customers in Sweden and Estonia 2018. The standardization and development of 5G has just started. Our knowledge and learnings from testing in a real outdoor environment will be crucial to understand and develop the 5G technology and networks needed to meet our customers’ future requirements on our services in a digitalized society.”
