The route of the road test covers major roads including expressways, trunk roads, tunnels and bridges. 5G coverage is defined as spot with received 5G radio signal level not weaker than -95dBm.
*Starting 9 May 2022, SmarTone 5G provides full MTR coverage including 98 MTR stations of the 10 MTR lines.
#Actual customer Internet experience within the country parks can be varied due to factors such as the geographical locations of user and the base stations, conditions of landscape (hill features, valleys, woodlands), the download server resources, Internet traffic conditions, the number of users, users’ devices and other factors that may arise.
