China said that while China continues to advance its ambitions to lead the next generation of high-speed wireless technology, it has deployed nearly 700,000 5G base stations this year, surpassing the original target of 1 million. .

Vice Minister of Industry and Information Technology (Liu Lehong) said the number is more than twice the number of 5G base stations outside China, without citing comparative data from other countries. .

Combined with previously released official data, the total number of 5G base stations deployed in China will reach 830,000.

The latest analyst report shows that the total number of 5G base stations across the country is 650,000.

The data predicts that Chinese telecom network operators will have 750,000 5G base stations by the end of this year.

Lihong announced in a speech at the China Development Forum in Beijing that there are currently more than 180 million devices running on the Chinese 5G network.

Lu Hong said: The infrastructure has launched a number of new applications based on the fifth generation, as new educational models have appeared in the field of smart education during the epidemic, such as: interactive distance learning supported by 5G technology, virtual reality, immersive education with augmented reality technology and 3D classrooms. .

According to analysts, the introduction of the 5G base station is still only a small part of the 5G base station in China, which has a huge base of 1.2 billion 4G.

As China builds 5G base stations, the country is competing with the United States for global advantages in advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, 5G networks and the Internet of Things, which are essential elements for increasing competitiveness in the new economy.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has identified 5G networks and data centers as a top priority for the country's investment in new infrastructure plans.

5G is an integral part of China's new digital infrastructure designed to improve connectivity between consumers and businesses.

To achieve full coverage, China needs 10 million 5G base stations, which requires an investment of about 2 trillion CNY ($ 280 billion).

According to the government for April, South Korea will be the first country in the world to introduce 5G services. About 115,000 5G base stations are in operation.

The South Korean government announced last week that the number of 5G service users in August reached 8.65 million.

According to the latest forecast from market research firm Gartner, the global 5G infrastructure market will nearly double by 2020 and reach $ 8.1 billion.
