The United States

In 2018, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced its 5G Fast plan in an effort to advance the position of United States among the countries that have employed 5G technology. Telecommunication companies AT&T and Verizon are considered the 5G leaders in the United States.

AT&T has launched its 5G network service in December 2018. In March 2019, Verizon started providing its standards-based 5G network in Minneapolis and Chicago. AT&T claims that the 5G network would be deployed in 30 major cities of the country by the end of 2019.

United Kingdom

Vodafone UK, EE, Three UK and O2 UK are the major telecom companies that have deployed 5G in the United Kingdom. The equipment to these operators is provided by Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia. In an attempt to capture the 5G market in the UK, Three UK has announced that it will provide an unlimited data service that is speed-cap free.

Vodafone UK has signed a deal with O2 UK to share equipment, which can be seen with joint network sites. Cornerstone Telecommunications UK will be managing the shared facilities.

China

According to the news agency Xinhua, the world’s largest 5G network was launched by the three largest Chinese telecommunication companies in October 2019.

China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom have deployed their 5G networks and each of them offers their services at $18 per month in 50 Chinese cities.

The areas with 5G coverage in China include Shanghai, Shenzhen and Beijing. Operator 3 Hong Kong is also planning to provide 5G services in the country.

The GSMA expects that there will be over 600 million 5G subscribers by 2025. That’s about 36% of China’s mobile users, who will make up 40% of the entire global 5G market.

South Korea

SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus are the three major companies that collaborated in December 2018 to launch 5G network services in the country.

In April 2019, SK telecom claimed to be the first telecom operator in the world to launch 5G network that works on 5G smartphones. In early 2017, KT Corp. completed a successful trial of their 5G system using extremely high frequencies for transmitting data in the Taebaek Mountains, where the 2018 Winter Olympics took place.

Since then, the South Korean carrier has expanded to cover the major cities in the country and it claims to have the first nationwide commercial 5G network in the world.

Japan

According to recent reports, Facebook Inc and KDDI Corp. will jointly develop services to provide 5G network in Japan. The 5G technology will be 100 times faster than LTE, which is used throughout the country and is ten times faster than 4G technology.
