300 Mbps uplink 5G speed record

Optus has achieved another Australian 5G record, smashing 5G upload speeds as part of its mmWave testing on its live commercial network, together with technology partner Nokia, as it continues to push the possibilities of its super-fast 5G network.

Clocking 300Mbps, the record-breaking upload speed was achieved on Optus’ 5G mmWave site in Strathpine, Brisbane by combining the carrier’s 4G 2100 MHz spectrum with mmWave spectrum operating on a single user MIMO (Multi input Multi output) mode using a commercial grade Casa Systems CPE.
