As 5G rollout continues to accelerate, three more announcements have been made, beginning with the news that Nokia and ANTEL, the Uruguayan state-owned operator, have successfully completed the installation of the first 5G commercial network in Latin America.
This network deployment started in the Barra de Manantiales area in the Maldonado Department in the south-east of the country, where the first 5G base stations are operational and ready to provide services. ANTEL showed the ultra-low latencies and high speeds of 5G to local authorities and press at a launch event, using a virtual-reality sports application. Nokia and ANTEL have a long partnership in delivering mobile, IP and optical services to the Uruguayan market.
