Wednesday 18 March 2020 | 14:26 CET | News
5G will account for almost half of China's mobile connections by 2025. Chinese operators' mobile capex is forecast to top USD 180 billion over the next five years, 90 percent of which will be used for the development of 5G networks, according to a report from the GSMA. The report also shows that China is leading early adoption in 5G and has already deployed more than 160,000 5G base stations covering 50 cities as operators aim to expand standalone 5G network coverage and capacity.
