As long as we have residents in some localities enjoying the introduction of 3G, people are switching to 5G on the opposite side of the continent. In major Chinese cities, residents have already felt the difference between using mobile internet 4 and 5 generations, but operators plan to innovate at least 50 cities by the end of 2019.
The introduction of 5G mobile internet has been undertaken by three leading Chinese companies - China Unicom, China Telecom and China Mobile. They are leaders in the mobile market and are certainly always the first to innovate. Currently, users are actively testing 5G in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen and other cities. VentureBeat said China Unicom has launched coverage in 14 cities, but the provider is known to be available in more than 50 cities. While China Mobile offers 5G in 30 cities. Speed up to 300 Mbps and above!
Demand for 5th generation mobile internet is very high due to its convenience and good price: $ 18 per month, which is much lower than in other countries. The only problem faced by providers is the placement of a sufficient number of base stations, which should cover a large area of the country. From the beginning of the year they are already installed 85 000, by the end of the year they plan to increase to 130 000.
