19 Oct 2017

UK mobile giant EE and Chinese vendor Huawei have announced that they have successfully completed an LTE-Advanced Pro technology test at Wembley Stadium in London. The measured peak data rate in the test reached 970Mbps, which they claim is the fastest ever recorded on a commercial network. The test used the newly released Huawei Mate 10 Pro handset on a 4T4R (ie. four transceivers and four receivers) network.

Tom Bennett, Director of Network Services and Devices at EE, commented: ‘Huawei’s test at Wembley Stadium showcases what can be achieved with 4G by investing in cutting edge technologies. We’ll continue to invest, and we’ll continue to drive the best performance from the latest smartphones.’
