China’s ministry of industry and information technology (MIIT) began to research and test 5G technology with the aim of commercialising it by 2020, the media reported.
“The purpose of the research and test is to support the formulation of global 5G standards and boost the development of the telecom industry,” said Cao Shumin, head of a 5G R&D team under the MIIT on Thursday.
Research and test work will be completed by 2018 and domestic telecom service providers will try to commercialise the 5G technology in the following two years.
