China Three Network Providers Get 5G License for Test

A few days ago, Chinese three major network providers (China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom) gained the 5G frequency band license for the national-wide test. China Telecom has obtained 5G test frequency resources with a total bandwidth of 100MHz from 3400MHz to 3500MHz; China Mobile has obtained 5G test frequency resources in the 2515MHz-2675MHz and 4800MHz-4900MHz frequency bands, in which the 2515-2575MHz, 2635-2675MHz and 4800-4900MHz frequency bands are new frequency bands.┬áThe 2575-2635MHz frequency band is the re-cultivation of China Mobile’s existing TD-LTE (4G) frequency band; China Unicom has obtained 5G test frequency resources with a total bandwidth of 3MHz from 3500MHz to 3600MHz.

 

Network Carrier 5G Frequency Band
China Mobile 2515MHz-2675MHz(N41), 4800MHz-4900MHz(N79)
China Unicom 3500MHz-3600MHz
China Telecom 3400MHz-3500MHz

This is the final test before the 5G in China will be commercially launched in 2019. As planned, the 5G will be launched for commercial trial in June 2019 and after application test, 5G network will expand the coverage more widely in larger scale at the end of 2019. And in 2020, 5G will become common and the cell phone will have 5 telecommunication modes.
