SmarTone launches 5G

27 May 2020

Hong Kong cellco SmarTone has launched its 5G service, offering what it claims is ‘the widest network coverage, both indoors and outdoors’. The firm is using Ericsson Dynamic Spectrum Technology, which it says provides a seamless transition between 4G and 5G. SmarTone CEO Anna Yip said: ‘We see limitless potential for 5G with its blazing-fast speed and super-low latency. 5G will benefit both consumers and enterprises and will be one of the key enablers for Hong Kong’s smart city development.’ Rival operators HKT, Hutchison 3 and China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK) all introduced their own 5G services on 1 April.
