According to the German newspaper “Business Daily,” the city of Shenzhen Has More 5G Base Stations than all of Europe, with 46,000 base stations to be precise. In Germany, there are 850 5G base stations. In terms of 5G deployment, China is ahead of not just Germany but the whole of Europe altogether
German main three network operators Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone, and Telefónica also have 5G networks that serve millions of Germans, however, they do not rely on new 5G mobile communications, rather they update the software to transform the existing 4G network suitable for 5G.
Customers will see the 5G logo on their smartphones, but there will be no difference in actual internet speed.
In the 5G field, Shenzhen leads in China and even globally, by December 2020, Shenzhen had more than 46,000 5G base stations.
If we count the whole country China had 718,000 5G base stations by the end of 2020, accounting for 70% of the world’s total. This year, the country will have well over 1 million 5G base stations.
professor at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Sun Songlin, said
“China is currently building a large-scale 5G network, which is far ahead of the world, and there are many voices of doubt in the industry. In the 4G era, China’s mobile Internet applications are number one in the world, and it is said that 4G will detonate the mobile Internet, but earlier deployments in the United States, Europe, Japan, and other countries and regions are not as prosperous as China. To be precise, it was the large-scale, wide-coverage 4G that detonated the mobile Internet. From the very beginning, 5G will be deployed on a large scale and with a wide coverage. It is the same logic. In the process of long-term integration with the industry, new business forms will be produced and industrial upgrading and digital transformation will be promoted”.
