Since 2019, many mobile operators around the world have predicted the development of 5G networks by leaps and bounds – only in reality, despite the brave start of the service, everything was not so rosy.


The most interesting thing is that the operators planned very large investments for various projects related to the development of fifth-generation networks, but many factors, including the coronavirus pandemic, made their own strict adjustments to their plans.



Even at the level of initial calculations for the payback of building networks of this level, it was clear that the return on investment would not be as fast as it was in the case of third – and even fourth-generation networks-then there were completely different initial conditions.


These include: the level of demand for network resources, the degree of development of the software environment, the prevalence among the population and companies of network needs – not only voice communication, of course, but also the first place in the needs of Internet access.

In addition, the equipment installed and functioning at this time, coupled with new trends regarding Huawei as one of the main developers of systems for 5th-generation networks, is far from meeting the initially stated indicators. A lot of videos on Youtube clearly demonstrates the fact that 5G at this time is not much faster than 4G, and users do not really feel any revolutionary difference, as promised by operators and developers.


Also, it is worth noting the fact that in reality, for critical systems for using fifth-generation networks, we can include such industries as smart city functions, telemedicine, and the like, but not ordinary mobile users, who will eventually pay for the change of infrastructure for enterprises and the public sector, which will become the main consumers (cloud gaming, I think, does not count)…


In any case, the actual full implementation of fifth-generation networks will begin only after the technical conditions of this standard are fully coordinated with existing standards that differ significantly in different countries of the world.


For example, in the US, this will happen (full network deployment) no earlier than 2022, after receiving all confirmations for the right to operate the 5G network…
