Vodafone Qatar announces tests with 5G spectrum

31 Jul 2018

Vodafone Qatar has announced its first tests conducted using spectrum in the 3.5GHz band allocated for 5G, adding in a press release that its engineers are in the process of laying the groundwork for a 5G network at more than 50 sites in key locations across the country, which will enable ultra-fast Gigabit speeds, low latency and reliable network performance.

Note that Vodafone Qatar’s larger local rival Ooredoo has already switched on a live 3.5GHz 5G (Non-Standalone) New Radio (NR) network at 50 sites around the capital Doha and is currently testing the first batch of compatible (home broadband) user devices.
