LMT tests new down­load fre­quency for in­tro­duc­tion of 5G

Baltic News Network - - Front Page -

Latvi­jas Mo­bi­lais Tele­fons (LMT) in co­op­er­a­tion with Elek­tro­n­iskie sakari (VASES), started tests within 1,500 MHz (1 452 – 1 492 MHz) range for the first time in Latvia on Thurs­day, 1 Fe­bru­ary.

The com­pany re­ports that this new fre­quency may be­come one of the stan­dards for 5G net­work. Tests will check the spread of ra­dio waves and stress the new Sup­ple­men­tary Down­link tech­nol­ogy. This fre­quency range was picked for specif­i­cally for data trans­mis­sion, and be­cause it can be ac­cessed by all modern mo­bile de­vices, LMT rep­re­sen­ta­tives say.

LMT Vice-Pres­i­dent for tech­nol­ogy mat­ters Gunārs Dan­bergs com­ments: «New fre­quen­cies, picked for data down­load, will al­low us to test ser­vices in 5G net­work and im­prove cus­tomers’ ex­pe­ri­ence with ex­ist­ing ser­vices that re­quire high speed and ca­pac­ity. De­mand for LMT smart tele­vi­sion con­tin­ues to in­crease. With new fre­quen­cies, we will be able to pro­vide our cus­tomers more high qual­ity tele­vi­sion ser­vices.»

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of LMT are sat­is­fied with the progress made to­wards 5G in­tro­duc­tion last year – a next-gen­er­a­tion mo­bile in­ter­net net­work was formed and the first ever 5G sta­tions were es­tab­lished in Latvia.

LMT also es­tab­lished new data trans­mis­sion speed records in prepa­ra­tion for 5G, in­clud­ing 930 Mbps mo­bile in­ter­net speed in LMT’s ex­ist­ing net­work, as well as wire­less data ra­dio con­nec­tion with a speed of 10 Gbps, the com­pany adds
