According to the reports, Verizon, the largest operator in the United States, combined with Nokia and Qualcomm to increase the speed of LTE networks to 1.45 Gbps in New York.
It is reported that the LTE network relies on Nokia's AirScale base station to demonstrate 6CA (Carrier Aggregation), 4X4 MIMO and 256 QAM technologies.
In August last year, Verizon and Ericsson cooperated to achieve a speed of 1.07 Gbps on the former commercial LTE network.
Of course, for 5G, Verizon is also full of confidence, after all, its 5G home broadband will begin to provide services in October. According to Nicki Palmer, head of network engineering and wireless networking at Verizon, the currently deployed 28GHz and 39GHz high-frequency (millimeter-wave) bands provide a stable 300Mbps network with a peak of 1Gbps.
