The value of each spectrum used wasn’t exposed, as well as the conditions under which the speed was attained was not revealed.
Saeed Al Zarouni, SVP of Mobile Network at Etisalat said ” We are pleased to announce that Etisalat UAE has achieved unprecedented 9.1 Gbps 5G network speed”
“This 5G ultra-wideband game-changing download speed is the fastest in the world. We at Etisalat always strive to meet the ever-increasing bandwidth demand from diverse needs of customers, businesses, automation, and gaming.
“Today’s landmark announcement is a result of Etisalat’s efforts in building a robust 5G network, and 9.1 Gbps is truly a huge leap forward in the 5G era to offer a speed 30 times faster than a 4G average throughput. This will have a significant and profound change on individuals, industries, society and the economy, transforming how we live and work
That does look like a little bit of an overstatement. Nokia recently achieved 8 Gbps and it provided a whole lot more information concerning the conditions under which the speed was achieved. We don’t also know, for example, whether Etisalat utilized a lab network or commercial network. We have no reason to doubt their claim but the world is waiting for more evidence and more details about this achievement.
We let everyone know once we have feedback. Stay tuned.
