“The Huawei 4.5G mobile technology installed by Omnitel is an essential step on the way to 5G. In creating of a new generation of telecommunications business we are comparing the speed of mobile with the fiber-optic internet in a functioning network and show that there will no longer be big differences between these technologies in the near future,” said Andrius Šemeškevičius, the head of technology at Teo and Omnitel.
