Telia Company has achieved record-setting speeds of 757Mbps during its recent massive MIMO tests in Stockholm on its commercial 4G networks. 

The tests which were conducted in partnership with Ericsson, proved readiness of Telia's network to support advanced applications and services like Virtual and Augmented Reality.

Telia used multiple access technologies to further prepare themselves how to develop 4G networks further as well as prepare for the next generation of mobile telephony, 5G, said the Operator.

At the end of last year, Telia and Ericsson brought 5G technology one step closer to deployment, after conducting outdoor tests on the first 5G trial system in Europe. The trial in Kista, Sweden demonstrated 5G capabilities in a real world environment over a live network and included tests on speed and latency.

The system used 800 MHz of spectrum in the 15 GHz band. During the test, peak rates of 15 gigabits per user and a latency below 3 milliseconds were achieved.

Pushing the limits now in a commercial network rather than in a lab environment proves that we can drive 4G and 5G development faster and with quality for consumers wanting better picture and sound quality and advanced services.

Mats Lundback, CTO, Telia 
Our goal is to offer our customers a taste of 5G in Stockholm and Tallinn during year 2018. Therefore, for us at Telia, it’s obvious and an important part of our daily work to test our network and show our customers that our network lives up to their demands, today and tomorrow.
