Vodafone and Nokia held a 5G teleconference between Ukraine and Finland

For the first time in Ukraine, a 5G teleconference between Ukraine and Finland took place. On May 25, Vodafone and Nokia connected three European cities with 5G – Ivano-Frankivsk, Kyiv, and Helsinki.

The 5G teleconference was organized during the Action Forum 2024, held by The Aspen Institute Kyiv at the Promprylad Innovation Center in Ivano-Frankivsk.

The forum participants heard a speech by Mykhailo Fedorov, Vice Prime Minister for Innovation, Education, Science and Technology Development, Minister of Digital Transformation. Helsinki, where the 5G network has been operating since 2019, also got in touch: the participants of the historic event were greeted by Ville Tavio, Minister of Foreign Trade and Development of Finland, who recently visited Ukraine. During the visit, the parties discussed, among other things, investments in modern technologies. In addition, the President of Nokia Mobile Networks, Tommi Uitto, broadcasted live from Helsinki via 5G.

5G став доступний не лише за допомогою спеціального демонстраційного обладнання

These were the first sites in Ukraine where 5G was available not only through special demonstration equipment. It was possible to experience a new level of speed and capabilities of modern technologies using ordinary smartphones and tablets with 5G support.

In addition, the forum participants witnessed a technological and artistic performance – a synchronized performance by two musical groups that were 600 kilometers apart. The Eclectic Sound Orchestra performed on the roof of Vodafone’s office in Kyiv, and the female vocal group Spivochi performed on the stage of Promprylad in Ivano-Frankivsk. 5G enabled the transmission of the best quality sound and image without delay, so that the musicians could play in sync and the audience could enjoy all the shades of live music and singing.
