5G era is coming, and we can’t get away from it. The struggle is quite fierce in this field. And we can’t escape from this as well. But this is the game of big players.

According to the Wall Street Journal, although China’s telecom-related business companies face 5G disputes in overseas markets, in the local market, 5G is driving them to thrive.

Analysts said that this was mainly driven by some positive signs. For example, the Chinese government recently stated that it will speed up the construction of 5G networks this year and issue temporary licenses for operators to use 5G networks in specific cities.

According to Morgan Stanley, it is estimated that in the next decade, Chinese operators such as China Mobile will invest about $421 billion in the 5G field, more than double the construction of 4G networks.
