SKorean carriers switch on 5G networks Before schedule

South Korea's 5G goes live earlier than scheduled to claim 'world's first' title US dismisses South Korea’s launch of world-first 5G network as ‘stunt’

South Korea has claimed it beat the USA by a matter of hours to become the first country to roll out a super-fast 5G mobile network, which allows users to download entire moves nearly instantaneously.

The US has pressed its allies and major economies to avoid 5G solutions from Chinese-owned telecom giant Huawei, citing security risks that technological backdoors could give Beijing access to 5G-connected utilities and other components.

According to market speculations, South Korea recognized itself as the first nation to debut 5G, but US mobile firms did not agree to this, claiming that they had rolled out 5G services in limited regions as early as previous year.

"It is meaningful that South Korean telecom companies are providing services and networks meeting South Korean customers' high standard in speed and picture quality", Ryu Young-sang, executive vice president at the country's top mobile carrier SK Telecom, said on Wednesday.

The technology is crucial for the future development of devices such as self-driving vehicles and is expected to bring about $565 billion in global economic benefits by 2034, according to the London-based Global System for Mobile Communications, an industry alliance. Users will get more data faster, with less delay.

Korea's three mobile carriers successfully started offering 5G mobile services late night on April 3, just two hours before Verizon of the United States announced the commercialization of 5G services.

As we all know, Samsung is a South Korean based hardware manufacturer and therefore, it should come as no surprise that the company's biggest fan base is in South Korea. Regular customers are going to be able to register for 5G services.

Sometimes it can offer 100-times faster speeds. The South Korean operators issued some 5G smartphones to a small number of domestic celebrities on Wednesday, with Verizon dubbing the Korean launches as a stunt.

Ed Barton, chief television and entertainment analyst at Ovum, said the shift from today's 4G networks to 5G will be significant. It has a total of 27 million users.

On the same day, Samsung Electronics will release the Galaxy S10 5G, the world's first available smartphone using the technology, and rival phonemaker LG follows with the V50s two weeks later.

LG Electronics Inc plans to release its 5G smartphone in South Korea later this month.
