A news from Beijing says that Chinese telecom giant Huawei said it has obtained 46 commercial 5G contracts so far in 30 different countries and have shipped more than one lac 5G stations globally, emerging as number one player in the race for setting up the super-fast and most efficient telecommunications system despite the US ban on use of its 5G services.
It seems like Huawei is proving that it will not let its users down, so they are still working on 5G as we all know their current shares are down because of bans.

China’s Ministry of Industry and Ministry of Information Technology have granted commercial licenses for 5G usage to four state owned telecom giant companies so that they start working on 5G services, and signaling. China’s determination to be the global leader in setting up super-fast wireless networks is unparalleled.
China’s ministries have issued licenses to China Broadcasting Network (CBN) and the China’s top three telecom operators – China telecom (TC), China Mobile(CM) and China Unicom(CU).
