27 July 2017

Vendors and operators across the UK are currently looking towards China, which is on track to launch commercial 5G networks by 2020 and is expected to become the world’s largest 5G market by 2025.

recent report from GSMA Intelligence and the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) revealed that after 5G networks are commercially deployed in 2020, following a two-year phased testing period, the number of 5G connections in China is expected to reach 428 million by 2025. This will account for an astonishing two in five (39%) of the 1.1 billion 5G connections expected across the globe by this point in time.
