According to a document from the GSMA association, dedicated to mobile operations, there is a strong demand for 5G technology in China, with more than 75 percent of users worldwide using it by the end of last year.
The association highlighted China’s commitment to incorporate 5G in order to accelerate digital transformations in industries and the construction of two million base stations to provide commercial service by the end of 2022.
To date, 1.4 million installations are already in operation, offering coverage to more than 500 million users.
Among them is the highest base station in the world that supports the 5G network, built at a height of 6,500 meters on Mount Qomolangma, or Everest, as it is also internationally known.
China launched the commercialization of the network in October 2019 and promised to maximize the potential of its telecommunications companies in order to build an efficient system at the national level supported by this technology, the one with the highest connection speed.
It is expected to be used en masse this year in personal communication and video games, all the while its use in autonomous vehicles is on the rise.
