TeliaSonera Norway Hits 1Gbps on Live 4.5G Network in Oslo


TeliaSonera Norway and Huawei have partnered to run the 'world's first and fastest LTE Advanced Pro (4.5G)' over a live commercial mobile network, hitting speeds of 1Gbps in Oslo, Norway. The demonstration saw usage of four frequency bands simultaneously - 800MHz, 1800MHz, 2100MHz and 2600MHz.

With the introduction of 4.5G technology, operators will be able to improve user experience and support the increase of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as new mobile Internet applications such as VR glasses and drone technology, said Huawei.

TeliaSonera’s 4G network provides coverage to over 95 percent of the population in Norway today, and 4G+ to over one-fifth of the population. 4G and 4G+ offers speeds of up to 80 Mbps and 300 Mbps. 

Abraham Foss, CEO of TeliaSonera Norway
This is the future mobile network for the new generation telecommunications companies. TeliaSonera is an innovative company that will always strive to be in front of the development, and we are proud to cooperate with Huawei in Norway to develop and test this new technology. 

Yang Chaobin, CMO of Huawei Wireless Product Line
What we witnessed today is only the beginning of the 4.5G era of wireless communications, where 1Gbps will be the new mobile broadband network rate benchmark.
