South Korea!

If there is one example on how to roll out a new technology in the benefit of society is Korea 5G launch.

There are some outstanding aspects of their 5G plan, encompassing regulatory, industry, OEMs, Telcos, applications and vendor ecosystem. I don’t think there is any country with this level of forward-looking.

Some interesting aspects about 5G in Korea:

  1. Regulator assigned +100Mhz on mid band of each carrier to secure nationwide deployments.
  2. Telcos are already carrying almost 30% of total mobile data over 5G networks.
  3. 11% of users are 5G subscribers (±8Mn subs).
  4. Users are experiencing in average 6 times faster speed than 4G. (and Korea was among the fastest 4G networks).
  5. Wide device availability including below 500 usd handsets.
  6. All carriers reported Industrial use cases, specifically for uses cases with ultra low latency, leveraging on Edge technologies.
  7. KT has already more than 5G 80,000 RRUs in service.
  8. National task force to expand 5G coverage in rural areas.
  9. Wide range of consumers apps for AR, XR and wearables.
  10. All telcos have reported ARPU increase due to 5G.

:+1: So Korea is free from 2G & 3G technology?

Korea is in another planet… :clap:t5::ok_hand:t5:

Really it’s another planet.

Yes, South Korean guys are not kidding with 5G.
7 Gpbs in 2022!

No. :slight_smile:
They are organized and knowing what they need in their future life and their children life.
Others they are just asking for customers increasing to gain more money.

92000 base stations for entire country had to be the pioneer in 5G.
Micro size and stupendous economic performance always leads to new scale achievements.

South Korea has always been known for blazing fast internet, even in the FTTH adoption era.
