    MTN Conducted Africa’s First 5G Technology, Trial Hits 20GB Per Second

    MTN has conducted a 5G technology and applications trial at its head office in Johannesburg in partnership with Ericsson.
    The announcement at the MTN headquarters in South Africa on Monday comes after the two companies signed a memorandum of understanding at AfricaCom 2017, to collaborate on the rollout of 5G technologies in South Africa, one of the first of its kind in Africa, IT News Africa reports.

    Some geek speaks: MTN received a temporary license for 800MHz of spectrum in the 15GHz band to conduct its 5G trial. The test achieved a throughput (data transfer rate) of 20Gbps with a latency of less than 5 milliseconds (ms), which is the highest achieved on a mobile network in Africa. The 5G trial is based on commercially available baseband hardware and 5G mobility is supported.

    Speaking at the event, Chief Technology and Information Officer for MTN SA, Giovanni Chiarelli, said that 5G offered a whole new world of potential for South Africa and the continent.

    “With 5G, remote healthcare through connected robots could offer world-class surgery in the most remote parts of the continent and the world. Self-driving cars could change the face of road safety, along with smart agriculture, smart mining and smart cities.

    There is no doubt that 5G will offer the consumer higher speeds and lower latencies but to achieve this, we need the capacity that comes with additional spectrum”.
    5G is knocking on the door, even though many of us are not yet used to the 4G LTE speed.

    The capability of the 5G network as fast as to be able to transmit data up to 20GB per second, this an insanely fast and moves the mobile experience to a whole new level.

    They should start by making sure that there is a 3G, not even 4G, network everywhere before embarking on 5G.
    The standard 3G data transfer speed is upto 384kbit/s for WCDMA, up to 7.2Mbit/sec for HSPA and a theoretical maximum of 21.6 Mbit/s. Majority of network users in Nigeria still struggle to get that speed of HSPA which is still in the class of 3G+.
    My take on it is that it is a symbolic advertisement stuff. Just like our other network with "The speed of light" connection that cannot stream a live event.

    My guy mtn be looking for how to pack your data faster... apply for 5g
    buy 1g sub
    on data
    open youtube
    remember "the test achieved a throughput (data transfer rate) of 20Gbps with a latency of less than 5 milliseconds (ms)"
    Your 1g go just flow like mamiwater

    on normal 3g when you are downloading and you stumble upon a spot that has even 900kb/s+ you will start worshiping that side like shrine...
    Sometimes network will be close to the roof You gat stretch ...
    Mostly its always one corner of the room that has the so called "Speed of light" that is moving like lagos lagun traffic

    It's really poor in my area. And to think that I am in the centre of Lagos. Etisalat is the network to beat.
