The Chinese telecoms giant says that according to the latest Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) data, at the end of 2019 some 62 network operators in 34 countries had officially announced the commercial launch of 5G services – “with 41 of these using Huawei’s 5G technology”.
"As of today, Huawei has concluded 5G commercial contracts with 91 telecom operators and shipped over 600,000 5G products,” said Yang Chaobin, President of Huawei 5G Product Line.
“In 2019, Huawei helped LG U+ in South Korea, EE in the UK, and Sunrise in Switzerland to deploy 5G commercial networks.
“In the third-party network performance tests conducted by RootMetrics and Connect, Huawei helped its operators rank No.1 in user experience, with an average downlink rate of 1.5 to 2 times higher than that of competitors' networks, which further demonstrates Huawei's superior Massive MIMO performance in actual commercial use.
“All these commercial deployment experiences will be utilized to improve product performance to meet customer expectations and help telecom operators deploy 5G commercial networks more economically and efficiently,” Chaobin concluded.
As reported by iTWire, the Australian arm of Huawei Technologies will hold a series of public forums across the country in mid-March under the name "Let's Talk Huawei", in a bid to "let ordinary Australians make up their own minds about the company".
