  • 4GB game effortlessly downloaded within 30 seconds on Etisalat’s 5G network in time for skydiver to open the parachute

Etisalat has demonstrated yet again its 5G technological prowess, this time through an adrenaline-pumping freefall from 15,000 feet.

Red Bull skydiver Dani Roman jumps off a plane on a mission: Can 5G download 4GB in time to open a parachute?

“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.
