The private network company Vodafone Idea has claimed that they have achieved the highest speed of over 3.7 Gbps with very low latency on the mmWave spectrum band in their latest 5G trials which is more than any other company in the country and also a download speed of up to 1.5 Gbps in 3.5 GHz band.
The company is conducting the 5G trials by government allocated 5G spectrum in the cities of Pune in Maharashtra and Gandhinagar in Gujarat along with its technology vendors.The Department of Telecommunications had given Vi mmWave high bands like 26 GHz, along with the traditional 3.5 GHz spectrum band, for 5G network trials.
VIL CTO Jagbir Singh said: “We are pleased with the speed and latency results in the initial stages of the 5G trials on the Govt allocated 5G spectrum bands. Having established a robust 4G network pan-India, delivering fastest 4G speeds and a 5G-ready network, we are now testing the NextGen 5G technology to be able to bring a truly digital experience for enterprises and consumers in India, in the future.”
The Department of telecommunications had approved the application of private companies like Jio, Airtel and MTNL for 5G trials. Jio said in the month of June that it recorded a peak speed of 1Gbps and Airtel said the same in July.
All the private companies are providing 4G networks all over India and are now trying to acquire the 5G speed.
The high technology 5G network has the capability of providing improved surveillance and video streaming/broadcast and also will enhance online gaming experience.
