During the 9th Global Mobile Broadband Forum, Huawei also showcased a 5G home broadband demo that "brings to life the transformative capability of 5G services". 

Huawei is hosting the 2018 Global Broadband Mobile Forum in London, and announced during the keynote that it has shipped over 10,000 5G base stations, while also outlining its 5G vision for the future

The company has also showcased a 5G home broadband demonstration in partnership with Three UK, using its 100MHz C-Band spectrum in conjunction with Huawei’s latest home broadband routers, which are dubbed "the first 5G commercial terminals in the world", which can be seen in the image above.

This allowed forum attendees to "experience ultra-high-speed 5G broadband services, such as cloud gaming and 4K video streaming".

We're told the service is "expected to deliver a maximum download speed of 2 Gbps, with an average of 1 Gbps for a single user.

"This follows the successful pre-commercial network tests that Huawei and Three conducted earlier this year.

"Huawei will continue to work with Three to conduct further 5G service tests in the UK, which are expected to be released to the public in densely-populated urban areas and train stations, paving the way for the full commercial use of 5G networks in 2019."

Yang Chaobin, president of Huawei 5G Product Line, said: "The 5G trials we carried out today demonstrate the opportunity this technology brings to the home broadband market.

"Huawei will continue to work with Three UK to bring customers more market-leading commercial applications of 5G."
