5G launched in China
China launches its 5G networks ahead of schedule as the country looks forward to making a technological breakthrough amid a protracted trade war with the US.
5G promises super-fast data rates that can support technologies such as self-driving cars.
Operators China Telecom, China Unicom and China Mobile has unveiled plans for 5G, the cost of the service will start from about 128 yuan or $ 18 per month. However, experts have warned that the price may increase.
Initially, Chinese operators wanted to start rolling out 5G in 2020, but the timeline has shifted forward as China and the US locked in an ongoing trade war that has also turned into a battle for technological supremacy..
5G space is one of the key battlegrounds and became politically significant theme. US President Donald Trump said This Year That America Should Win The 5G Race.
The US is also putting pressure on Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturer Huawei, claiming its equipment poses a national security threat and is being used by Beijing for espionage. The company denies all charges.
5G commercial services are now available in 50 Chinese cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.
Besides China, South Korea is the only country to launch next-generation networks nationwide. IN USA, AT&T, Verizon, T-mobile and Sprint also launched 5G networks, but only in some cities.
China is on track to become the largest 5G market in the world. The country will have the largest number of connections by 2025. At the same time, a number of problems still remain around the implementation of 5G. One such problem is the lack of 5G-compatible phones on the market..
In the premium segment, Huawei has its Mate 20 X 5G and Mate 30 devices that can connect to next-generation networks. Chinese smartphone manufacturers Xiaomi, Vivo and ZTE also have suitable models.
