remarkable and unexpected speed
The performance of the 5G dwarfs those reached with previous technologies, and the various carriers are continuing to test the real limits on our networks. TIM that it had exceeded the threshold of 2 Gb per second on a 5G commercial network. It has been possible thanks to a collaboration with Qualcomm and Ericsson, exploiting millimeter frequencies to 26GHz. Qualcomm was able to show the potential of its modems equipped by Snapdragon X50 leaning on a Askey RTL0200 terminal.
The performances were achieved with 3GPPP solution Not Stand Alone. This means that it was possible to interact with various carrier devices, in overlap with the already active 4G network.
is obviously testing, since by the time the TIM 5G network relies solely on the frequency of 3,7GHz.
The statement also reports that the results achieved will improve over 2020. During the year the 5G network will add more bands, for a total of about 800MHz and stretching up to the 1,000 threshold.
Huge investments of TIM - we are talking about 2.4 billion euro - has allowed it to acquire the three best bands available. TIM currently has the rights to the exploitation of 3,7GHz, 26GHz and of 700MHz. Using the 3,7GHz band, the company started its coverage 5G on the Italian territory. His goal is to reach, by the end of 2021, 120 cities, 200 tourist centers and 245 industrial districts. In addition there are about 200 projects designed specifically for several large companies.
For now, TIM has 80MHz of bandwidth on the 3,7GHz and 200MHz on that of 26GHz. As of July 1, 2022 should become available bandwidth to 700MHz.
Within a context in which the speed of the 5G reach values higher than the optical fiber, the fundamental problem of the consumer remains the amount of monthly GB offered by the various companies. It would be really time to start propose flat planes, because at 2Gb per second it is really early to finish the available data.
