Sunrise expands 5G footprint to over 300 markets

4 Nov 2019

Swiss telco Sunrise says it now has 5G networks live in 309 towns and cities, which is almost double the coverage provided by the next best provider. Having opened a limited trial 5G service in April this year, Sunrise went on to carry out a full commercial launch in September, covering 262 towns and cities. It is using 3.5GHz spectrum to provide connectivity at peak speeds of up to 2Gbps, it says. The firm adds that it has so far avoided using 700MHz and 2600MHz spectrum as compatible handsets are not yet widely available and the speeds offered in these bands do not differ significantly from those provided via advanced 4G networks.
