12/01/2017

According to a statement released on Wednesday by Verizon, the deployment of commercial 5G networks will occur in the next year. The company plans to introduce these services in three to five locations, starting in Sacramento, California, in the second half of the year. Later, the company plans to define other settlements that will be connected to the commercial network 5G.

Verizon stated that in 2017 the company successfully conducted test of new generation networks in 11 localities. According to the operator, this technology will give consumers completely new opportunities for using the Internet, IoT (Internet of things) and new level of access to multimedia content. Verizon says that only in the initial phase of the massive deployment of broadband 5G networks in the US, its services can be used by up to 30 million households.

Verizon could become one of the first companies in the world to deploy 5G commercial networks for consumers. Currently, 5G networks are being tested in many countries, but only the Swedish Telia, together with Intel and Ericsson, announced plans for commercial launch in 2018. The 5G network for public use is expected to be deployed in Stockholm, Helsinki and Tallinn. The first commercial 5G-modem was Snapdragon X50, released by American company Qualcomm in October last year.

In July last year, the European Union adopted a concept for the development of 5G networks with the prospect of launching commercial networks. British BT Group plans to launch test networks in 2019 to bring it to commercial use a year later. In South Korea, the launch of the first commercial 5G network is planned for 2019, in China - for 2022.
