FICORA has granted Telia a test licence for 5G testing in Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa.

The granted test licences concern the following frequency bands:

  • 3.5 GHz
  • 26 GHz
  • 28 GHz

The purpose is to test and investigate the features and functionality of 5G base stations in the Telia Finland network. Moreover, the test frequencies will be used for showcasing 5G technology at public events.

The aim of 5G is to meet the needs and wishes of many wireless communications user groups in terms of mobility, higher data speeds, better reliability, security and energy-efficiency, among other issues.

Finland has the ambition to be one of the world leaders in the development and deployment of the next-generation wireless broadband, 5G. FICORA aims to secure sufficient frequencies for wireless communications testing.
