Awarded Fastest 5G Network Speed in Hong Kong Once Again by Internationally Renowned Speedtest
HONG KONG, March 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — After being rated the fastest 5G network in Hong Kong by Speedtest*, the internationally renowned internet speed evaluation website, in the fourth quarter of 2020, China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK) has once again leads with the fastest 5G network upload and download speeds in Hong Kong over three other local operators from a newly published report** last month.
Market-leading upload and download speeds
Speedtest has conducted a 5G network test in Hong Kong from October 2020 to January 2021, and has again affirmed CMHK’s extraordinary 5G network. CMHK’s upload and download data speeds recorded impressive results of 32.54 Mbps and 211.53 Mbps respectively. Relying on its superior 5G network, CMHK is besting the other three local operators’ download speeds by nearly double, demonstrating phenomenal internet speed performance with its undoubted strength.
As a local operator with the largest 5G spectrum in Hong Kong, the remarkable test performance arises from CMHK’s possession of the largest number of 3.5GHz spectrums — often referred to as the "5G Prime Frequency Band" — and being the only 5G network provider in Hong Kong currently acquired the 3.3GHz (3380-3400MHz) and 3.5GHz (3400-3460MHz) of continuous bandwidth spectrum (80 MHz in total). By flexibly allocating the 3.3GHz and 3.5GHz spectrums for indoor network optimization, CMHK effectively provides an excellent customer experience with comprehensive and seamless 5G coverage, thus allowing access to the extreme speeds of 5G networks, anytime and anywhere.
