China has allowed three telecom companies to operate the 5G network services commercially for the first time.
According to Chinese media, China’s Industry and Information Technology Ministry has provided the license of 5G network operations to China Mobile, China Unicom, China Telecom. Similarly, the telecommunication operator China broadcasting network has received license privileges for 5G network services.
After Huawei, the world’s leading telecommunications infrastructure producer was banned by the theUnited States; the Chinese government has given out license to Chinese telecommunications companies to operate 5G services. These companies are using Huawei’s 5G infrastructure. On the other hand, the United States has compelled its companies not to sell any goods to Huawei leading to a certain trade war.
In such a situation, China has hinted out a message to the world by giving out licenses for companies to operate the 5G services that are surely going to be revolutionary in the communications field in the future.
Huawei, with more than 50% stake in China’s telecommunication infrastructure said. “From here, China has reached the age of 5G. It is ready to help Chinese companies complete the construction of effective 5G networks. We believe that China will soon lead the world in 5G technology. “
America, South Korea, Britain, and Australia have already started preparing for the development of 5G technology which is calculated to be 10 times faster than the currently in use, 4G network.
According to Chinese governmental officials, by 2025 A.D. the Chinese companies will probably spend about $223 Billion for the development of 5G. China Telecommunications claimed to spread the technology in at least 40 cities within 2019.
This step from the Chinese government is going to play a pivotal role in the 5G network development around the world.
