One of the important indicators of 5G development is the global ranking of 5G patents. Several domestic companies own nearly 40% of the world's 5G technology patents (including those that have passed and failed), and are at the forefront in terms of the number of patents. At the same time, companies such as Samsung in South Korea and Qualcomm in the United States also have sufficient say in 5G patents.

From the announcement issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China in late November 2017, the third phase of 5G technology research and development trials has officially started, and the domestic 5G development momentum is very strong. In just two years, on June 6, 2019, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China officially issued 5G commercial licenses to four domestic telecommunications operators, and China officially entered the first year of 5G commercialization. As of October 31, 2019, the three major operators have successively announced the content of 5G commercial packages, and officially launched 5G commercial packages on November 1.
China Telecom builds 5G base stations
Chinese telecom operators are advancing rapidly in 5G work. In 2019, the number of 5G base stations in China will exceed 50,000. In addition to building a large number of 5G base stations, operators are also optimizing the user experience brought by 5G signals. Chinese mobile phone manufacturers have not been idle, and they have launched their own brands that support 5G networks. As soon as 5G mobile phones are on the market, they are sought after by a large number of users.
China's 5G development may start slightly later, but the speed of construction and the high proportion of 5G technology patents are undeniable facts. Not only that, as telecom operators increase their investment in 5G layout, China's 5G network will have more room for development.
