Huawei to carry out first 5G trials in Ecuador

Wednesday 26 June 2019 | 11:50 CET | News
Ecuador is preparing for its first trials of 5G technology, to be carried out by Huawei, according to executives of the Chinese telecommunications giant cited by local daily Expreso. Huawei is currently finalising details of the tests with government authorities, including the country's Agency for Regulation and Control of Telecommunications (Arcotel), as well as mobile operators, although commercial 5G networks aren't likely to be launched before 2021 or 2022.
