TORONTO — TeraGo Inc. announced that its 5G fixed wireless technical trials in the Greater Toronto Area have successfully advanced and have experienced improved through-put speeds, increasing current results to approximately 1.5 gigabits per second (Gbps). The technical trials will shift from the Company’s Thornhill head office and will be continued at its Mississauga data centre.

During the trial phase, TeraGo made several product upgrades and has conducted testing at various distances, which have contributed to the steady advancement in results.

In addition, TeraGo has completed the following infrastructure updates and investments that will go to support the development of its 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) network:

  • Modernizing data centres to support micro-services and automation to reduce network operation complexity;
  • Addition of dark fibre rings between hubs in different areas as backbone for 5G deployment; and
  • Upgrades to transit peering connections.

“In conjunction with advancing testing trials, TeraGo is in advanced discussions with new and existing vendors to build and optimize their product portfolio”, said TeraGo COO and CRO Blake Wetzel in a prepared statement. “We are also engaged in a number of conversations with partners who are interested in pursuing 5G FWA customer trials with TeraGo. 5G private networks are expected to allow customers to access a high quality, reliable and secure networking solution that helps improve their connectivity capabilities and propel their business forward.”
