Germany's largest mobile service provider put into use the first 5G network in the country, Deutsche Welle said, quoted by Iconomist.bg
It is clear that only Bonn and Berlin residents have the opportunity to use the new network, and only if they use a particular smartphone model, which currently costs about 900 euros.
Within two years in Bulgaria there will be a 5G mobile network. The new technology will reduce the Internet connection's latency and the speed will be over 10 times higher than the 4G network, NT reported.
5G will allow the development of future technologies - related mobility, digital medicine and intelligent factories.

The company said it will launch 4.5G with speeds of up to 375 Mbps aggregating three carriers. By 2017, Turkcell will reach a speed of 1000 Mbps, according to the press release.
