Fast 5Gbps speeds and ultra-low latency obtained by Nokia and U.S. Cellular in 5G tests
The testing took place inside and outside using a base station and "user equipment." At first, this was done with a clear line of sight between the two. Obstacles like dry wall, windows and metal panels were introduced in between the line of sight in order to test real-life situations. Additionally, the base station and the user equipment were also moved behind trees and plants. The indoor testing took place in a lab owned by U.S. Cellular.
U.S. Cellular has also said that it plans to conduct 5G tests in the 15GHz band with Ericsson. The latter sent in an application with the FCC to conduct these tests with U.S. Cellular next month.
