Telia Company initiates the first live 5G tests in Denmark by utilizing a 5G antenna which has been mounted on the roof of the company’s Copenhagen office.

The live tests will be performed in co-operation with Nokia and the TT-network - the infrastructure company of which Telia Company owns 50 percent – which is responsible for operating and developing the Radio Access Network. Another two test sites will be established during the summer.

Telia Company will use the 3.5 GHz frequency band for the tests and the company plans to for instance try out 5G smartphones.

Morten Bentzen, CEO, Telia Denmark
Our expectation is that the demand for 5G will initially be among businesses where the technology can be utilized to make production lines, inventory management and logistics more efficient. In addition, the extremely low latency that 5G entails is crucial for the development of autonomous and self-driving vehicles and robotics.

Henrik Kofod, CTO, Telia Denmark
We are also considering inviting a number of private customers to try out the solutions and opportunities that the 5G technology will offer to consumers via, for example, Fixed Wireless Access.
