TeraGo begins 38GHz mmWave 5G fixed-wireless trials

5 May 2020

Canadian B2B connectivity/cloud provider TeraGo has begun 5G fixed-wireless trials at its headquarters in the Greater Toronto Area, utilising the 38GHz millimetre wave (mmWave) frequency band with Nokia network equipment and end-user devices from Askey Computer Corp. Due to the impact of COVID-19, actual customer trials have been delayed until the second half of 2020, with the aim of bringing benefits to businesses including enhanced speed/throughput, low latency, and ‘fibre-like’ reliability.

In Canada’s largest six cities, TeraGo holds 14 out of 20 licences issued in the 24GHz band and 25 of 27 licences issued in the 38GHz band, covering 2,210MHz in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton. The company provides businesses with cloud, colocation and connectivity services supported by its own fibre backbone and IP network, and operates five data centres.
