Among all the nations in the world, keen on rolling out 5G to enhance trade and commerce and also improve the quality of lives of its people, China seems to be at the forefront. The leading four telecom players in the nation are set to pour in a staggering 200 billion yuan over the course of the next four years in order to create a super-sophisticated infrastructure for 5G mobile communication in the Yangtze River Delta Region.

The names of the four leading companies are China Unicom, China Mobile, China Tower Corp, and China Telecom. By 2021 they intend to rollout 5G application network in the Yangtze River Delta region. This is a result of a deal signed with authorities from Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Anhui.

Plans on to Build Biggest 5G Trial Network Surrounding Yangtze River

According to the partnership, the four companies are charting a roadmap to create the biggest 5G field trial network in the area as soon as this year. And by 2019, the delta surrounding Yangtze River will be one of the first to have pre-commercial 5G services. Post that, the telecom companies are expected to launch the network formally by 2020. This has been announced by Shanghai Municipal Commission of Economy and Information Technology.

For China, which harbors ambitions of pioneering 5G applications worldwide, this would enable it to take a major step forward in that direction. For the uninitiated, 5G is a high speed technology that can enable customers to download a 8-gigabit movie in a matter of seconds.
