Ericsson 5G field tests with Sprint yield 4Gbps speeds

Ericsson has sought to rival Nokia by getting in on the Sprint 5G party, in which it claims to have achieved 4 Gbps download speeds. The vendor joined Sprint’s efforts in delivering live 4K broadcasting of the Copa America soccer tournament taking place across the country. While Nokia chipped in for the first trial down in California at the Levi’s Stadium, where it used a live milli metre wave system running at 73 GHz, the next trial in Philadelphia saw Sprint achieve the same 4K streaming goal using a whopping 400 MHz of spectrum. Unsurprisingly, Sprint claims it saw some eye-watering speeds being achieved on the ground by users.
