Telia Finland announced that it provided 5G connectivity at the recent Assembly gaming fair from 02 to 05 August at Helsinki Messukeskus.
Assembly is the biggest computer culture event in Finland, and brings together thousands of players and other IT enthusiasts. Held twice a year, this round-the-clock, multi-day festival is held on 2–5 August at the Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre.
Participants at Telia’s special tournament for gaming parents at the Assembly digi festival in Finland get to play over a 5G connection. At the biggest computer cultural event in Finland, parents who have honed their skills to the max with their kids will compete in the popular Overwatch game in Telia’s 5G Parents vs Parents challenge. The swift twists and turns of esports are an excellent trial ground for the capabilities of 5G.
The 5G connections at Assembly are built on a Nokia test base station and an Intel 5G Mobile Trial Platform. In May, Telia was the first operator to bring a live 5G connection to the Finnish public at an esports event at the Kamppi shopping center in Helsinki.
