At the Shanghai leg of Mobile World Congress 2019, organised by GSMA, 5G was the theme through and through. From the exhibitors to the panelists at the tradeshow that happens in Shanghai’s New International Expo Center every year, everyone harped about the benefits 5G connectivity is poised to bring to users. And for good reason. As this decade comes to a close, the next generation mobile connectivity is set to go live in a lot of mobile markets, many of them in Asia. South Korea already has a functioning 5G network, while China is expected to start 5G rollout in 2020. Five more nations are also expected to roll out 5G this year including Australia and Phillipines, while in 2020, Japan, Macao, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Vietnam are expected to embrace 5G, at least to some extent. Now, India’s name is also on the list of countries expected to roll out 5G connectivity in limited capacity by 2020, but there are some dire challenges that India needs to overcome to unlock the next generation mobile network.
