A whopping 6.5 million base stations will be in use for supporting such huge subscriber base by the same time”, Huawei Technologies Deputy Chairman Ken Hu said, delivering the keynote address of the two-day Huawei Global Analysts Summit 2019 here.

He also said that Huawei had made rapid inroads into markets across the world and it already has 40 contracts on 5G, till date, from various countries.

Ken pointed out that 5G has been well accepted, and more quickly, in comparison with ther earlier generation 3G and 4G technologies.

He quoted from report by Huawei which says it took 10 years for 3G-based telecom firms to get 500 million subscribers, and 5 years for 4G service providers to achieve this figure.

However, 5G technology can make it possible for telcos to acquire 500 million users by just three years from now, the Huawei official said.
