Working with Qualcomm Technologies, EE has become the first European network to deliver 5G over seven different spectrum carriers.
The collaboration sees spectrum aggregation across both 4G and 5G bands to boost EE’s network capacity
The new technology will be rolled out in major cities this year and will be supported by the next generation of smartphones
David Salam, Director of Mobile at BT, said: “By pooling our research expertise with Qualcomm Technologies, we have been able to further enhance the EE network and will start to deliver some of Europe’s fastest 5G speeds in our major cities.”
Vikrant Jain, Director, Business Development at Qualcomm added: “This is a notable milestone in the evolution of 5G technology. Aggregating seven different spectrum bands for 5G will provide enhanced customer experience.”
