Both the operators of half the world as the manufacturers of mobile telephony is agreed for 2020 out of the year of the commercial deployment of new telecommunication networks 5G.
In Spain the starting gun gave Vodafone in 2019, creating the first network to 5G of our country. However we are talking about a network that is operational in a very timely and only in large urban centres.
Today one of its main rivals, the French Orange, has announced that it will deploy their networks 5G in Spain before the end of 2020.
5G of Orange will be NSA, not SA
We must make it clear that Orange will create an infrastructure based on the 5G NSA, that is to say, the version of the 5G that takes advantage of the installation of the 4G to make more rapid deployment. What happens is that this version is not as fast as the SA.
All you need to know about the 5G. SA, NSA, Sub 6, mmWave…Do you know what mean all the terms related to the 5G? We tell you all about concepts as NSA, SA, Sub 6 or MIMO below.
The company gala has not wanted to wait more and deploy their networks prior to the occurrence of the Second Digital Dividend in the autumn, at which time the operators will be able to begin to create their networks 5G SA.
The reason put forward by the company is that there is now more interest on the part of consumers, and the offer of mobile is very high, even in the medium range.
First cities available
As in the case of Vodafone, Orange will begin the deployment in the major cities, such as Barcelona, Madrid or Seville, but gradually will reach out to other like Pontevedra, Álava or Alicante.
However, a city has coverage 5G does not imply that we can use the mobile with this connectivity in the entire area of the city. In fact Vodafone just covers major areas in cities with millions of inhabitants.
The entrance to The 5G of Orange will arrive in Spain by the end of 2020 appears first in Android Free.
