Elisa has claimed it has achieved a speed of 1.9Gbps over its 4G test network using Huawei latest 4G technology.

Commenting on the development, Sami Komulainen, VP of mobile network services at Elisa, said, “This new speed record is a step towards the 5G network and also an excellent indication of all the opportunities the 4G network still has to offer. The speeds that the 4G network offers are continuously increasing and, possibly in the next few years, we will even be able to offer mobile data connections of several gigabits per second to our customers.”

At present, Elisa’s 4G network offers a maximum theoretical downlink speed of 450Mbps, and the operator offers fastest speed of 300Mbps to its customers. Elisa had 2.3 million consumers at the end of 2015.
