China issues 5G licenses in timely boost for Huawei
SHANGHAI/HONG KONG（Reuters）-China granted 5G licenses to the country’s three major telecom operators and China Broadcasting Network Corp on Thursday，giving the go-ahead for full commercial deployment of the next-generation cellular network technology.
The approvals will trigger investment in the telecommunications sector which will benefit top vendors such as Huawei Technologies，just as the Chinese network equipment provider struggles to overcome a U.S.blacklisting that has hurt its global business.
State-owned carriers China Mobile，China Unicom and China Telecom，as well as state-owned broadcaster China Broadcasting Network Corporation Ltd，are the four licensees named by the government.
The three carriers had been granted trial 5G licenses at the end of 2018 and Thursday’s announcement gives the go ahead to begin commercial deployment ahead of the original timeline that was targeting that for 2020.
The accelerated 5G rollout could help Huawei as Washington pushes its allies around the world to drop the firm from their 5G networks due to fears it could be used as a tool of Chinese state espionage，a claim that Huawei has repeatedly denied.
Huawei said in response to the license grant that it was prepared to support China’s 5G build-out.It said it had signed 46 5G commercial contracts in 30 countries to date，shipping more than 100，000 5G base stations.
China is racing against other countries to deploy 5G on a large scale，paving the way for advances in technologies like artificial intelligence and autonomous driving.
Some analysts however believe China’s 5G rollout will face difficulties due to the U.S.ban on Huawei buying parts and components from American firms without Washington’s approval.
“We remain concerned that if the U.S.export ban on Huawei remains in place for some time，and is even extended to other Chinese tech companies，it will be very difficult for China to builc5Gin scale，”Jefferies said in a note.
“The action by China to accelerate 5G licensing does not remove or alleviate this risk.”
Telecom operators in Britain，the United States and South Korea have already started offering
5G services in limited areas.
China welcomed foreign enterprises to participate in China’s 5G market，an official from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology，which issued the licenses，said in a statement.
Foreign firms likely to be interested in the rollout include Nokia and Ericsson.
China Mobile，the largest Chinese telecom operator，said it planned to offer 5G services in more than 40 Chinese cities before the end of September.
Shares in Chinese 5G-related firms such as ZTE slumped after the news，as investors pocketed gains.

comparing with US action towards Huawei，we can see very clearly who is narrow-minded.
cup of tea
Telecom operators in Britain，the United States and South Korea have already started offering
5G services in limited areas.With only hundred users with testing device can access.In less than half a mile distance.
Meanwhile，China already has full 5G running in Beijing subways.They call it test while it is already working.While US and Korean call it real deployment while it is not even a reliable test.
China didn’t ban anyone to boost Huawei，rather it welcomes Nokia，Ericsson to build 5G networks in China.
The UK has released 5g already on one of its’largest operators.They are using all Huaweiequipment.If you have not tried their phones you are missing what Apple should have been.
5G requires a huge infrastructure and Huawei is the only company able to roll it out on a national scale.We don’t even have national 3G coverage here in the U.S.and are probably 10years behind China on 5G，meaning we have already lost the the tech and economic war.We’re becoming a backward country.
huawei is a very great mobile.p30 is great photographer for taking picture of distance scenery.
you can record when you answer the telephone for free.
5g is a very great technology，it will change our lives，we should welcome those high technology companies to development our country.
Soon Sri Lanka may get faster speed than US.Most Asia already have higher speed than US.
Foreign visitors often complain why US network so slow.
Over half the people here don’t even understand 5g…its limitations，cost，and advantages and disadvantages compared to 4g..…
I have Bigly words that I know.
I have to go in the back yard to get a good signal，that is progress，before i had to go to my neighbors yard.
honest truth，as other countries move forward，sadly the US is lagging behind.…
if it wasn’t for chinese imports，i wouldn’t be able to afford the hobbies that ido-3d printing and cnc fabricating.
things are simply too expensive here in north america.
China’s 5G operation was scheduled long time ago and it is not something just happen now.
Play game on market，fairly or dirty？I buy which one most effect and high speed than close door to use slow method.
China’s 5G launch was scheduled long time ago and it is the real 5G not the fake one like the one implemented by the US.
Agenda 2030 is pushing forward and cannot be resisted.5G and facial recognition Al is coming as well.
From Huawei president’s Cooperation Concept and American president’s Isolation Concept，you can easily know that US will sleep well in its Security Dream，while other countries are running fast ahead.While so many Americans are saying that Chinese has been stealing their IP，ignoring patents，making clones，and skipping R&D，Chinese has done the best on 5G，and also many other aspects certainly，and they are still running fast，with the cooperation with others，including US.American can’t just hold their IP sleeping and complaining.Cooperate and Learn.No Trade War.It will certainly make America great again.
If they’d know what 5G really is，they wouldn’t be stealing or replicating techs from us and Japan，would they heh.Just ask yourself this no brainer，how would China be able to do something the US；Japan or EU haven’t？？
China already knows how to manufacturer those US components.They can make their own.
Nokia and Ericsson can participate just so long as they pay the”special tax and regulatory fees”
then use Huawei product.
What type of radiation does this 5G emit？Is it different and or stronger than what we already have？
Who needs licenses when you can just steal any tech China has.I mean，that’s what China means by”free trade”，right？
Life made simple
“a claim that Huawei has repeatedly denied”but the problem here is that almost all Chinese companies are denying that they are stealing IP，ignoring patents，making clones，basically they are skipping the R&D of most products at the expense of others work.
I don’t know what people are fussing about.Verizon already launched 5g in certain parts of the USA and is working on expanding it.I don’t know how people figure the USA is 5 years behind.
We already have it.
Governments should not allow China to spy on them and especially I don’t believe the citizens of other countries want to be spied on by China.
The signal from 5G towers loses its strength at around 300 meters which means that we will need towers positioned relative to one another at very short distances.
Reuters，democrats and liberals love Huawei and China.They just want to be their mouthpiece every second of the day.
The pretense of market driven farce，notice that all of them are state owned，and they give it a license”designation.
Something tells me that the turn down of 5G in the western world is because 5G hasn’t been tested on humans.The US military has warnings on equipment within the same frequencies that say the radiation will make you sterile..can’t imagine what will happen to people that are just casually swimming in it，with little connectors next to their junk and brains.
Do we know beyond a shadow of a doubt how safe 5G is to the human body？Does it affect our DNA and other key areas of the body？Before humanity buys into and swallows G5 hook line and sinker，making some corporations very rich，we really should make sure it is very safe.
That includes very safe for women who are pregnant，for babies and young children.In fact，all of us.More than once us humans have been”sold”a bill of goods that proved harmful，if not down right dangerous.
The US is only going to accelerate Chinese dominance in technology.The Chinese are investing in education，state-of-the-art infrastructure，universal healthcare，space exploration，and more.
I can hear them laughing at Trump/Pompeo/Mnuchin and all those other fools that think Be Best Melania Bulying willwork
That’s just so fantastic..now the government can quickly download data from every citizen of the chinese collective.
Oh brother，typical China.Skip the trial tests and put it to market.What could go wrong？
Especially when they aren’t going to really be able to build 5G anymore with the American ban on components.And there are more bans coming.Huawei has 3 months worth of gear left.
Then it will quietly close its doors.
Why do we need 5G，save money wait a few yrs for 10G.Its faster robotic phone call and 500 tvchannels commercials
