Taiwan media observed that South Korea’s three major telecommunications companies launched 5G network, 5G user volume has grown rapidly, but users actually use the experience of the legendary high speed network. Reported that 5G network is difficult to see results in the short term. Jang Dong-gil, a 30-year-old man who works for a technology company in Seoul, became South Korea’s first 5G user eight months ago, but he recently admitted that he had “no feeling for 5G networks” because many times mobile phone signals travel between 4G and 5G networks, Taiwan’s Business Times reported on January 2. Forced him to simply shut down the 5G network.
Yun Seung-yeol, a 27-year-old architect, was also promoted by telecoms operators to buy the Galaxy Note 10, which supports 5G networks, but complained that 5G was useless. Living in the suburbs, he commutes for an hour to work in Seoul every day, but as soon as he leaves the city he can’t get a 5G signal, he’s thinking about switching back to 4G. ”
Reported that in April last year, KT, SK and LG Uplus South Korea’s three major telecommunications companies on the same day opened 5G network, so that South Korea took the lead into the 5G era. By the end of last year, there were 4.5 million 5G users out of A.D.A. population of about 51 million.
The 5G network claims to be more than 100 times faster than 4G, and is seen as an advantage in developing autonomous driving, virtual reality and other cutting-edge technologies, so governments are scrambling to launch 5G in the hope of supporting the next Uber or Nyfe, but that vision has yet to materialise.
“There are not good 5G applications on the market yet,” said Woody Oh, an analyst at U.S. Strategic Analytics in Seoul. ”
The report reviews the development of mobile network found that: 3G network came out in 2001, although the speed of data transmission but the user’s feeling is not strong, until the first generation of iPhone in 2007, 3G network only completely changed human life. The same 4G network was launched in 2011, but it was only in recent years that revolutionary network services emerged.
Julian Gorman, Asia-Pacific director of the Global Mobile Systems Association, said: “The market is still in its infancy in terms of the speed of 5G penetration. “
