The American multinational professional services providing company Deloitte says that China is leading the race of 5G deployment. America may not be able to catch up with China.
Even though the USA has been lagging in the deployment of earlier network technology generations, it has persisted to be the world’s biggest economy. However, Deloitte informs that the US will face failure this time. The primary feature of 5G is connecting all sorts of devices to the internet instead of only tablets and smartphones.
The deployment of 5G will not only improve the connectivity but it will also produce new services altogether. Countries that are going to adopt 5G services will experience massive gains. Some of the extreme critics of the Chinese companies have voiced against the ban lift from ZTE. However, both Huawei Technologies and ZTE are thrusting China to lead the 5G race.
On one hand Nokia, the Finnish company is ready to roll out its 5G service, on the other hand, China doesn’t seem to be in hurry to announce the launch of its 5G services. Despite the fact that only a few of the US mobile operators are ready to deploy 5G in the country, it is not enough to gain the leading position. While the US operators are coming up with fancy terms such as “5G Evolution”, China is silently getting ahead towards the finishing line.
While China owns 1.9 ml mobile sites, America has only 200,000 of the same. The length of the Chinese sites is also in the leading position right now. The US has been outspent by the Chinese sites by almost 24 bl dollars. Besides, China has added 350,000 more sites since 2015.
The reason behind the Chinese investment was overlooked so far. An infrastructure organisation has been created in China with the name of China Tower. Three of the prominent Chinese service providers are the stakeholders of the company. the investment made by China Tower for the sites have reached 17.7 bl dollars since the year 2015.
