Telstra, Ericsson and Qualcomm hit 5 Gbps 5G download record
The 5 Gbps for a single user on a 5G commercial network builds on a previous 4.2 Gbps maximum capability 5 Gbps for a single user.

Telstra, in collaboration with Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies has successfully achieved a new 5G maximum download speed record on a commercial network of 5 Gbps for a single user. The 5G NR data call was performed at the 5G Innovation Centre on the Gold Coast using the commercial production network.

This world first, using the commercial production network and a smartphone form factor mobile test device, is a result of the continued effort to not only increase the speed capability of the network for all Telstra customers but unlock key learnings for Telstra to implement in the immediate future. The achievement builds on a previous 4.2 Gbps maximum download speed capability achieved in September 2020. The milestone will see Telstra customers experience a more advanced network performance, paving the way for greater capacity and capabilities on the network.

The three companies have reached a new maximum throughput speed record in the live network with the Ericsson Radio System complete base station for millimeter wave (mmWave), the Streetmacro 6701. The throughput was achieved via NR carrier aggregation (CA) of eight 100 MHz n257 mmWave carriers combined with LTE CA of two 20 MHz Band 7 carriers. In total 840 MHz spectrum was used for single user, which is a major milestone for wireless communication. The device used was a smartphone form factor mobile test device, powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X60 5G Modem-RF System with 3rd generation Qualcomm® QTM535 mmWave antenna modules.
