South Korea has become the world’s first country to launch 5th-Generation (5G) networks. Three national mobile carriers introduced the first 5G-enabled smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S-10, across Seoul today. One of the mobile carriers, LG U-plus, has collaborated with Chinese tech giant Huawei in deploying 5G base stations at over 10,000 sites.
South Korea’s top telecom companies SK Telecom, Katie and LG Uplex launched 5G services at 11 pm on Wednesday. Prior to the 5G service, the date of April 5 was kept. America, China and Japan were involved in the race with South Korea to get the title of providing 5G services first.
According to the information, there is speculation that due to the launch of late 5G services by South Korean companies, US Telecom Company Verizon was forced to launch its 5G services.
During a program, Verizon launched its 5G services in Chicago and Minneapolis on Wednesday itself. He started the services a week before the scheduled date. According to reports, South Korea launched 5G services two hours before the US.
South Korea’s largest telecom company SK Telecom has announced on Thursday that it started its 5G service on April 3 at 11 a.m. Katie and LG Uplus also said that at the same time they also started their 5G services. The 5G service will be available only to customers from April 5.
Experts said that the 5G service will provide fast connectivity to the smartphone. Its speed will be 20 times faster than the 4G and it will allow customers to download the whole movie in less than a second.
