Huawei sets world record for 5G speed

Huawei has submitted a little something of its technical expertise by breaking the world record 5G speed on a single user smartphone.

The Chinese cellular network equipment manufacturer built a 3GPP compliant test network at a Turk Telecom facility in Istanbul to achieve speeds in excess of 2.92Gbps.

Although it’s unlikely that commercial users will be able to access speeds any time soon, it does demonstrate the theoretical potential of 5G using commercial equipment. A Huawei Mate X smartphone was used, alongside a Turk Telecom 5G SIM card.
