For the Chinese market, three telecom giants are actively working to actualize 5G network stability. China Unicom, China Telecom and China Mobile working to build a 5G network for the next commercial trial. According to the Beijing Daily, the delay in the 5G standard will not affect the commercial progress of the 5G network, and the unit price of 5G traffic will definitely decrease compared to 4G. Some experts have analyzed that this means that as long as the user does not use 5G for mass downloading, the cost performance of 5G traffic should be higher than 4G.
According to the announcement given by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, they have issued a nationwide 5G low-frequency band test frequency license. Among them, China Mobile has obtained a total of 260MHz bandwidth 5G test frequency resources in the 2515MHz-2675MHz and 4800MHz-4900MHz bands, while China Telecom obtained 3400MHz – 5500 test frequency resource with a total bandwidth of 100 MHz. China Unicom has obtained a 5G test frequency resource with a total bandwidth of 100MHz from 3500MHz to 3600MHz.
Yang Guang, general manager of the Industry and Business Cooperation Department of China Mobile Communications Research Institute, said in an interview that in the upgrade process of 2G, 3G, and 4G, the trend of price reduction has become very obvious, and the price of data and voice call has been continuously decreasing. After the actual application of 5G, operators will continue to respond to the requirements of national speed-up and fee reduction. Although the specific decline cannot be accurately predicted, it is certain that the unit price of 5G traffic will definitely be lower than 4G.
