Tuesday 30 October 2018 | 16:52 CET | News
Russia is set to become a "fast follower" 5G nation on the global stage, with 5G networks set to cover more than 80 percent of the country's population by 2025, according to a new GSMA study. Russian mobile operators are expected to launch commercial 5G networks in 2020, and 5G is expected to grow to account for almost one in five of the country's mobile connections (48 million) by 2025, establishing Russia as the leading 5G market in the CIS.
