Finnish, 06 Jun 2019Finland already has 5G from teleoperator Elisa. You should check... moreHey there,

Elisa is actually offering 5G services on mobile broadband, which is quite different - it is a router at home that's connected to a cable and you can set up and enjoy next-gen connectivity from your home on your smartphone, laptop, VR, TV, etc.

True mobile 5G, i.e. walking on the streets of Helsinki and casually watching highlights of Valtteri Bottas on YouTube, is not yet there. And since we're mobile-oriented media, we try to concentrate on the mobile side of communications.

Anonymous, 06 Jun 2019You missed this news. https://www.rt.com/news/461199-huawei-5... moreyou must be slow. let me help you out. look in my post. i said: "the russian market" won't save huawei from annihilation" meaning that 5g deal with russia will not save huawei 5g infrastructure. why? because it needs arm, qualcomm and many other us patents to make the hardware.

that deal is dead because huawei won't have enough components to place the hardware in russia and if it do have enough hardware now, it will not in the future to keep up the maintenance for the hardware and future upgrades.

doa deal with russia!

it's funny that huawei claims to be independent and not government affiliate but the dictator of china goes to russia and brings huawei with them to make a deal with its huawei's state-owned 5g network to russia! (i thought putin was an intelligent person)

nah, huawei don't spy for government. /s

There are serious security concerns around Huawei. Stop looking at it through the narrow fanboy prism you are used to on these phone sites.

Italy has pretty horrible internet, so this is good news.

Huawei is the biggest telecommunications company and its chinese.

So why wasn't China the 1st country to do 5G.

European countries are doing it faster and phones like S10 5g are benefitting.

Don't give me no bull about it 5G isnt mainstream and its better to wait. If thats the case they shouldnt make the Mate X a 5G device, and wait till 2020 like Apple to release a 5G device.
