Orange, Huawei testing 5G in Malaga

25 Apr 2019

Orange Espana and Huawei have confirmed that they will demonstrate 5G mobile technology at the 5G Forum event in Malaga this week. The companies will utilise the Chinese vendor’s 5G-capable Huawei Mate 20X handset and leverage the 3.5GHz spectrum that Orange acquired during the government’s July 2018 5G auction. The handset will become available on a commercial basis in the second half of 2019, while Huawei expects to deploy 5G radio nodes in both Malaga and Seville in the coming months.
