Before the live broadcast, due toHuawei5G traffic is too large, exceeding the traffic limit of Sim card, the British operator used by the host. Live broadcasting has to be delayed, and the host must be full of traffic for live broadcasting.

It was not expected that the flow of 5G in China was so large.

According to BBC News, EE, Britain's largest telecommunications operator, took the lead in launching 5G commercial services in parts of six cities, including London and Manchester, on June 30. The BBC News Network sent three teams to London Covent Garden for the first live 5G news broadcast in the UK.

Three BBC Reporting Groups

Before the live broadcast, Rory Cellan-Jone, a 61-year-old BBC technology journalist, shared tidbits on Twitter. "It's different from our usual live broadcasting." The camera turned to the white Huawei device on the roof. "That's the key device that will enable us to broadcast live 5G for the first time in the UK."

Lorry said that live broadcasting was once delayed due to connection problems. He reasoned that when testing 5G live broadcasting, because the traffic of Hua5G was too large to exceed the Sim card traffic limit provided by EE in the device. Subsequently, the BBC News Network said that it was not allowed to recharge traffic to Cary to ensure live broadcasting.


Lorry was very excited in the camera. "This is a historic moment, because we are communicating pictures to you through 5G."Then he began to sway from side to side. "I don't know what it would be like if I swayed around the picture. But I think it should be very clear, and there's no delay.

During the live broadcast, some viewers found Lori's right hand trembling.

The Daily Telegraph said the audience then responded to the situation on BBC News. Two hours after the live broadcast, Lorry admitted on Twitter: "Today, some people saw my hands shaking when I was on 5G live.So this is also a good time to announce the news: I was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's syndrome.I'm receiving good treatment and the symptoms are now mild. So I live as usual. Make progress every day! Go ahead bravely!"


Subsequently, a large number of netizens came to the Twitter to offer their condolences. Lorry tweeted again after returning home at night, saying that after a long time of work, he was very touched to find these lovely messages. "This shows that Twitter is still a lovely place."

Velocity measurements vary from place to place, some as high as 980 Mbps

The other two groups had different 5G experiences. Sarah Walton, the BBC correspondent, chose a "5G signal best" location, which should have been her "first 5G live broadcast", but in the middle of the live broadcast, Carton appeared and turned grey, but the audio continued to spread.

The studio anchor can only laugh and cut off the signal. "Sorry, I have to interrupt you, because it's strange that the 5G signal doesn't work properly."

Another journalist, Chirs Fox, did not broadcast live pictures, but reported in text. He used Wah 5G on the streets of London to tweet a little video from time to time, with a proud smile on his face, calling the speed of the Internet "super fast".


Back in the office, Fox wrote an article, "5G: EE launches the British Next Age Mobile Network", saying that when various media reported on the spot, they had to connect multiple 4G networks to report at a time, and this time the BBC reporter completed the live broadcast with only one Sim card.


At present, the speed of 5G network in Britain is predicted to be 5 times that of 4G, while the actual speed measured by The Verge News Network varies from 190 Mbps to 980 Mbps in different regions. The velocity of Lowry is 260 Mbps.

Britain is the first country to use China 5G in "Five Eyes"

At the end of last year, observer. com reported that the "Five Eyes Alliance" of Western intelligence groups, including Britain and the United States, had conspired to "encircle" China for 5G. But this year, internal disagreements began to emerge within the group. On April 24, the National Security Council, chaired by British Prime Minister Teresa May, has agreed to Huawei's "limited" participation in 5G networks such as antennas and other "non-core" infrastructure.

Then EE rebutted the doubts on May 22. On May 30, it launched the UK commercial 5G, "Huawei will continue to provide us with 5G access equipment. This company is still an innovative equipment supplier that we attach great importance to."

In addition to EE, Vodafone, another British operator, has announced that it will open 5G services in seven British cities, including London, starting in early July. In a recent interview with Xinhua News Agency, a spokesman for Vodafone also said that the operator used Huawei equipment in part in the UK's 4G and 5G network construction.

Fox also refutes the so-called "5G threat theory" in his 5G experience article. He hinted that before.Mobile phoneBefore the launch of cellular network and Wifi, there were similar queries. Is it good to not use it now?
