5G first came into commercial use in 2019 in China and was accelerated during 2020. However, Huawei hopes that 2021 will be the first year of 5G being applied to businesses on a large-scale.
Yesterday, Ding Yun, Huawei’s Managing Director, announced that Huawei has deployed 5G in more than twenty industries and signed more than 1,000 5G industry application contracts so far.
Huawei’s contracted operators ranked top in 5G network experience in tests conducted by a number of third-party organizations in major cities around the world, including Seoul, Amsterdam, Madrid, Zurich, Hong Kong and Riyadh.
China has built the world’s largest 5G network with 800,000 base stations and more than 200 million users. It plans to begin rolling out 6G, which is 100 times faster than 5G, in 2029.
