Telia maintains a new speed record in its Swedish 5G network


The test was carried out with an Iphone 12 and it is thanks to frequency space in the 3.5 GHz band that Telia bought in the 5G auction earlier this year that it has now been possible to increase the speed. Of course, other operators also have better opportunities to offer higher speeds now that the frequencies that were distributed are being put into operation.

The last time we heard about a Swedish speed record in 5G, it was Tele2 who told us that they at Hötorget, also in Stockholm, had measured 1.5 Gbit / second in their public network. It was a year ago and then the 5G networks in Sweden were still newly started and above all did not have access to the frequency bands that can now be used through the auction.

Tele2’s as well as Telia’s measurement has now been done with ordinary mobile phones in the public network, in Tele2’s case an Android phone, in Telia’s case an Iphone 12. This means that the speeds that are measured are speeds customers in general actually should be able to come up in as long as they are in a place with the right conditions.

Since 5G was first put into operation in Sweden, the operators have increased the coverage outside the larger cities while the total Swedish 5G coverage is still very modest and you have to zoom in quite far on the coverage maps to even discover the small ones and get the number The 5G spots.

With the speeds and short response time that the 5G network can offer where it is expanded, Telia hopes to be able to attract more people to offer services based on those opportunities.

– We also hope this can inspire companies to start developing completely new digital services that use the unique technical features that 5G can offer, such as high bandwidth and short response times. We have already seen evidence of how 5G can contribute to safer work in mines, more accessible care and smarter public transport. But we have only begun to scratch the surface, especially in terms of consumer services that will facilitate and improve our lives, in everything from entertainment to connected homes, says Telia’s network manager Staffan Åkesson.
