5G in the world

It is quite likely that the first widespread 5G network will be built in South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. In Europe and North America, the first 5G network will probably emerge in 2019-2022. In the beginning, 5G coverage will be very limited and supported by 4G technology. Currently there is no reason to believe that 5G coverage will be as wide as it is with mobile technology generations used today. This is largely because of high frequencies. It is likely that the future network will be a 4G/5G hybrid. 4G will provide wide coverage, and 5G will enable large capacities in densely populated areas.
