China switches on superfast 5G network

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY VIDEO) — China has rolled out 5G across 50 cities. It’s not the first country to install the technology, but it’s the first to make it available on such a large scale.

The launch happened two months ahead of schedule, as China powers ahead in the race to 5G – a race that earlier in the year, Donald Trump said America would win.

This comes amid the ongoing US-China trade war, where 5G technology is a key battleground.

The US has boycotted Chinese 5G tech provider Huawei, saying it poses a security risk, and is urging other countries to follow suit.
