MTN Nigeria, the country’s largest wireless operator by subscribers, has demonstrated 5G mobile communications in Abuja, Calabar and Lagos. Local newspaper Punch reports that the live demos were carried out in partnership with the federal government, as well as equipment vendors Huawei (in Abuja), ZTE (Calabar) and Ericsson (Lagos). The 5G tests will run for three months using trial spectrum – reportedly frequencies in the 26GHz band – allocated to MTN by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
