70 Gbps Download Speed Achieved in the First 5G mmWave Speed Test

Turkcell and Huawei have created a new speed record when carrying out a 5G mmWave speed test. In the test performed using real 5G equipment in the 71.5 - 73.5 GHz frequency band, a new speed record was reached by reaching download speeds of 70 Gbps. The tests were carried out at Istanbul Turkcell Küçükyali Plaza.

Turkcell has become one of the few mobile operators in the world that can reach this speed with current 5G technologies. Along with Huawei, they plan to continue work on 5G technologies and intensify their joint R&D efforts.

As a result of speed tests carried out, it is possible to provide more realistic predictions of data transmission speeds and capacities that will be possible with 5G. With the introduction of 5G, it is predicted that the download speeds will go up to Gigabit levels, and a capacity increase with critical importance will come with it. In addition to increased speed and capacity, real-time latency applications will enter our lives with 5G.
