Do you get data 15,000ft above UAE? Skydiver finds out
He downloads an app while free falling from 15,000 feet.
Etisalat has demonstrated its 5G technology, this time through an adrenaline-pumping freefall from 15,000 feet.
Red Bull skydiver Dani Roman jumps off a plane to find out whether you can download a 4GB app using mobile data in time to open a parachute.
On an average, skydivers need to deploy their parachute after 30 seconds from 15,000 feet.
"Will Etisalat 5G be able to complete a 4GB download in time to open my parachute?" asks the Spanish professional skydiver in the video, who has been traveling and touring the skies of the world since 2016.
There's only one way to find out, he says. Etisalat tests whether it can download a 4GB game for Mohammed Al Kaabi, an Emirati YouTuber with a channel called UAE Skills, just in time for Dani to open his parachute.
It begins as a skydive like any other, with Dani jumping out of the plane. Excitement builds as Mohammed and Etisalat's monitoring team excitedly wait for the game to finish downloading in 30 seconds, and for Dani to pick up the cue to deploy his parachute.
With download completed, Dani deploys his parachute. Etisalat effortlessly downloads the 4GB game on its 5G network in less than the set time. In contrast, 4G could only download 0.75GB for the same duration of 30 seconds.
