BelTA cites Yuri Petruchenya, director general of Belarusian state-owned telco Beltelecom, as saying that the company has finished testing a 5G network and is now ready to move to the launch phase. In a presentation outlining the next generation technology in the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone on 14 January, Petruchenya confirmed that Beltelecom has successfully tested 5G services using equipment operating in the 3.6GHz band. The two sites – the industrial park itself, and a second location in Kopyl District, Minsk Oblast – used equipment supplied by Huawei of China. Access speeds peaked at 1.235Gbps, he said.
