Estonian, Finnish ministers make world’s first 5G video call

Estonian Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure Kadri Simson and Finnish Minister of Transport and Communications Anne Berner on June 27th made the world's first 5G video call using the network of telecommunications group Elisa.

The world’s first commercial 5G networks were launched on Wednesday in Tampere and Tallinn and a video call was made for the first time between two 5G networks. Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure Kadri Simson made a video call to her colleague Minister of Transport and Communications Anne Berner. A 3.5 GHz frequency was used for the establishment of the 5G network, which is also one of the first frequencies in the future 5G network.

“The volume of the movement of data in the world is ever increasing and therefore the introduction of new technology is extremely important. Estonia already today is contributing to the development of self-driving vehicles and without a 5G connection it is difficult to organize automated movement based on artificial intelligence on the roads,” Simson said.
