China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK) announced the introduction of the 5G Network to the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), becoming the first local operator to offer 5G service at the international transportation hub. This illustrates CMHK’s 5G network strength, which will allow visitors at the airport to enjoy an extraordinary 5G experience.
CMHK’s 5G Network at the HKIA fully covers the check-in hall, baggage reclaim area, as well as arrival halls A and B. CMHK's 5G customers will be the first to enjoy the ultra-high speed transmission and low latency 5G network at the airport, providing them with an opportunity to be one step ahead of others.
According to the latest 5G speed test completed at HKIA, CMHK's 5G network has recorded 500Mbps and 104Mbps for download and upload speeds respectively at the departure hall on level 7 of Terminal 1, and 446Mbps download speed and 80.8Mbps upload speed at the arrival hall on level 5 of Terminal 1.
