TPG Telecom has turned on 5G standalone providers in “parts of Sydney” in what it claimed was a globe-first.

The telco claimed it is running 5G standalone providers in 700MHz spectrum, which it claimed provided “wide outdoor 5G providers, as well as deep indoor 5G protection in city and suburban parts.”

The company operates using Nokia radio tools.

“We’re excited to be the first network in the globe to realise the real probable of minimal band 5G SA at 700MHz,” TPG Telecom’s govt standard manager for cell and mounted networks Barry Kezik claimed in a statement.

“TPG Telecom’s minimal band 5G will extend our 5G protection, supporting our intention of reaching eighty five percent of the inhabitants in Australia’s top rated 6 towns by the end of the calendar year and modifying the way folks and factors join to the TPG Telecom 5G network.”

Standalone refers to 5G networks that are capable of operating in pure 5G manner, rather of remaining aided by current 4G infrastructure.

Rival Telstra claimed past 7 days that it had also enabled 5G standalone providers, indicating it could force ahead with so-identified as “slicing” trials where digital parts of the network are optimised for individual consumers and use conditions.

Optus has also not too long ago claimed on trials using 5G standalone technology as it also eyes a countrywide deployment.
