June 11, Colombo: Mobitel (Pvt) Ltd, the national mobile service provider in Sri Lanka successfully reached the highest mobile 5G speeds for the first time in South Asia exceeding speeds of 1.55Gbps using a commercial 5G mobile smartphone on 7th June 2019.

Following the demonstration of 5G Speed tests using a commercial 5G smartphone for the first time in South Asia on 4th June 2019, Mobitel went on to achieve a new speed record of 1.55Gbps for South Asia, making a momentous landmark on the 5G deployment across the globe.

As a result of these mobile 5G speed achievements, Ookla, the global leader for speed test benchmarking has recognized Mobitel as the First Mobile 5G Network in South Asia, which is a proud achievement to all Sri Lankans.

These Mobile 5G services were demonstrated using Huawei 5G network equipment in 3.6GHz trial spectrum allocation from the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL), which always encourage and strengthen the evolving ICT transformation in Sri Lanka. Mobitel finds it encouraging to work with a progressive regulatory body in broadening the vistas of the Sri Lankan Mobile Broadband market.

The next generation of 5G services will not only provide Giga bit speeds, but also will revolutionize the industries across the globe with inherent ultra-reliable and low latency capabilities of 5G technology.

Mobitel (Pvt) Ltd, the National Mobile Service Provider, successfully showcased South Asia’s first 5G deployment over a Mobile Network on 5th April 2019 which was hot on the heels of the 5G deployments in the U.S.A (2nd April 2019) and South Korea (4th April 2019), connecting a commercial Mobile smartphone to its 5G network.
