In a live 5G test network, Türk Telekom and Huawei have achieved a single user 5G smartphone speed above 2.92 Gbps, breaking the world record in this field. At the same time, Türk Telekom was also the world’s first operator to test 5G New Radio Carrier Integration Technology with the Huawei smartphone.

“We combined two 5G carriers and established a new world record by reaching speeds of above 2.92 Gbps in our live 5G test network,” said Yusuf Kıraç, Türk Telekom’s CTO. “We are also the first operator to experiment with the 5G New Radio Carrier Aggregation Technology, which doubles the 5G link speed. We have reached unprecedented speeds thanks to this technology, which provides many benefits for users and operators.”

Simon Pei, Deputy Country General Manager of Huawei Turkey, said: "In today's test, what we have achieved is not only a record in Turkey but also a world record for 5G speed. Based on C-band 200MHz IBW and 2CC Carrier Aggregation technologies which only Huawei products can support, the test was performed in Türk Telekom’s test network with Huawei 5G commercial network equipment. Huawei and Türk Telekom used innovative pure 5G NR Carrier Aggregation technology which substantially allows higher data speeds, increased capacity and wider spectrum."
