M1 and Huawei have completed a 5G demonstration over 73-GHz E-band spectrum, achieving Singapore's highest 5G transmission speeds of 35Gbps.

The demonstration at M1's main operating center in Jurong has validated the performance of 5G using millimeter wave high frequency bands, the companies announced.

M1 CTO Denis Seek said 5G will support the massive number of low-latency connections critical to driving the next wave of technological development in areas including virtual and augmented reality, the connected car and autonomous vehicles as well as IoT applications.

“Singapore’s mobile networks are widely acknowledged as amongst the most advanced worldwide, and M1 is committed to staying at the forefront of 5G technology to ensure our consumers enjoy the best experience and latest smart applications,” he said.

In Hong Kong, SmarTone and Ericsson recently conducted the city's first 5G demonstration using millimeter wave spectrum.
