Harkan Cervell, President of Ericsson Taiwan has revealed at in event today that Ericsson reached new maximum 5G speed in lab tests. The Ericsson team reached 25.3Gbs according to Taiwanese news outlet AppleDaily.

In 2014 Ericsson demonstrated 5Gbs in a 5G test setup. Within 2 years the company has apparently been able to increase 5G data transfer speed by 5x. That is quite impressive.
Swedish Politician Gunnar Hökmark shared on Twitter a test screen from the Mobile World Congress last month where Ericsson demonstrated 5G speeds of 22.7Gbs.
Carriers and networks technology providers including Nokia, Huawei and Ericsson have started to setup 5G field trails. The maximum speeds in 5G field tests reportedly reach 3.6Gbs. Ericsson can beat that in the lab by a factor of 5, showing even more promise for the super high speed mobile future.
