5G commercialization 1st, speed is 3rd… Real-World Speed ​​Comparison in 8 Countries



According to Open Signals, a UK-based wireless network quality assessment agency, eight countries have launched 5G commercialization services. In Asia, Korea and the UAE were included. Of the six other countries, all but European countries are European.

5G real-time rate 3rd among 8 countries



Open Signals measured the highest download speeds 5G users use in their daily lives in these eight countries from April to the end of June, showing that the United States and Switzerland are faster than us. The highest download speed for real users in the US is 1815 Mbps, which is 2.7 times faster than 4G.

The second fastest country was Switzerland, with an actual download speed of 1145Mbps. Switzerland's 5G speed is about 2.6 times faster than 4G. In Korea, the highest download speed of 5G is 1071Mbps, which is 450Mbps faster than the highest download speed of 4G, 619Mbps. Compared to the US or Switzerland, the speed difference between 5G and 4G is relatively small.

European countries that started 5G services later than us were found to have little difference between 5G and 4G speeds, or 5G download speeds a bit faster. In the UK, Spain, and Italy, the download speed difference between 5G and 4G services was up to 200Mbps. In Spain, the maximum download speed of 5G was 602Mbps, which is only 6Mbps.

An unusual country is Australia. In Australia, the maximum download speed for 4G users was faster than for 5G users. The maximum download speed of 4G was 950Mbps, but 5G was slower than 792Mbps.

What is the difference between Korea and the United States?

According to the open signal, the US is faster than us because it uses very high frequencies and the bandwidth allocated to carriers is even wider at 800 MHz. Bandwidth can often be compared to highways. So if you have wider bandwidth, you have more cars, and you can run more cars at the same time. Thinking of a vehicle as data means that more data can be sent at the same time, and the same data can be shorter.


Korean carriers use 80-100MHz bandwidth at 3.5GHz band. Compared to the United States, if we are a one-lane highway, the United States is building and using an eight-lane highway. Theoretically, it is up to 8 times faster, but the higher the frequency, the stronger the straightness and the poorer the frequency characteristics, such as poor permeability to obstacleyear

71 million 5G smartphones next year

According to Ericsson, one of the world's leading telecommunications companies, the global full-scale 5G era is expected to begin in 2021. By the end of this year, there are an estimated 11 million global 5G subscribers. It is expected to increase more than tripled to 20 million in 2021 after surging to 72 million next year.

By 2022, 5G users will surpass 600 million, accounting for more than 10% of the world's mobile users. By region, the majority of 5G users will be concentrated in the Asia-Pacific region, including Korea and China. Apple expects to start producing 5G phones in 2020 and change most models to 5G by 2021. Apple has been pursuing a strategy of releasing new products as new technologies enter growth, and 5G services are no exception. Apple users will have to wait another year or two before they can use 5G services.
