5.5G 3CC CA

Stc said the company has executed a 5.5G three Carrier Components Carrier Aggregation (5.5G 3CC CA) trial by utilizing three Sub-GHz frequency bands to achieve massive speeds of 3.6 Gbps on commercially available devices.

While the above are speed aspects achieved by the company, in the coverage aspect, stc has combined 2100 MHz 5G band (Sub-3 GHz lower spectrum band) with other large blocks of two mid bands to achieve boosted 5.5G Coverage. In these trials, Stc achieved both speeds and coverage, which helps drive high-speed services to more 5G devices from a single tower.

Areas that don't have coverage, such as basements, deep indoor areas and high-building areas, can benefit from the breakthrough results of coverage, says stc in its statement.
