Orange Spain intends to continue expanding the 5G network it switched on last September to reach 90 percent of the population by 2022, reports Xataka Movil. The operator announced the plans in a press conference following the publication of its fourth-quarter results, in which it revealed that it already offers 5G services in 121 Spanish cities, rising to 400 by the end of the year, equivalent to a population coverage of over 51 percent. It also said two-thirds of its 15.9 million mobile customers currently use 4G-LTE networks.
