    MTN says it has achieved download speeds of more than 20 gigabits per second in its first trial of fifth-generation (5G) technology.
    “This is the highest achieved on a mobile network in Africa‚” the service provider said in a statement on Monday.

    It said it was ready to deploy the technology commercially but could not do so until it had access to additional frequency spectrum.
    The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa‚ which regulates spectrum‚ has not yet allocated spectrum for 4G infrastructure‚ TechCentral reported‚ forcing operators to reallocate 2G and 3G spectrum.

    “There is no doubt that 5G will offer the consumer higher speeds and lower latency‚ but to achieve this we need the capacity that comes with additional spectrum.MTN has a 4G license in Nigeria and could look forward deploying the technology in the country in the near future.
    MTN has collaborated with network equipment provider Ericsson on its 5G trial and found that the technology is at least 100 times faster than 4G.
