GUANGZHOU, Jan. 25 -- Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in south China's Guangdong Province launched a 5G base station Friday, marking it as the first 5G-covered airport in the country.

The speed of the network can reach 1.14 Gigabytes per second, around 50 times faster than the current 4G network, according to a test.

The base station was built by China Unicom's Guangzhou branch. It uses Huawei's 5G Lampsite, an in-depth radio coverage solution that supports indoor deployment in large to medium-sized sites.

Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport is a major airport in south China with air routes to more than 90 international and regional destinations. In 2017, it handled more than 65.8 million passenger trips.

Apart from the airport, Guangzhou also has 5G coverage in its city landmarks as well as important industrial parks.
