EE, part of the BT Group, is turning 3G signal into 4G on more than 500 mobile towers in the next six months to enable the maximum performance on the top smartphones being released in 2018, as more customers demand high speed mobile data connections.

Mobile World Congress Americas -- Nokia and Sprint will show the first live demonstration in the U.S. of a 5G New Radio (NR) connection over a dual mode-capable Massive MIMO radio, bringing this revolutionary technology one step closer to reality.

Denmark is today rounding a technological milestone. For the first time, Danish mobile customers now have access to an internet speed that has rounded the magic limit of 1,000 Mbit / s. Initially, Telia has opened for 1,000 Mbit / s in Copenhagen. But more cities are on their way. However, it is still only a small handful of mobile phones that support such high speeds at all.

The Telenor Group has long developed and tested the new mobile technologies that will lift the 4G network into the next generation of 5G networks.

Telia Company’s 5G network which operates on test frequencies issued by the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority was launched on September 5 at the Telia 5G Arena in Helsinki in the presence of Johan Dennelind, President and CEO of Telia Company, who kept his promise from 2016 to launch 5G in Helsinki in 2018.
