Wojciech Jabczyński & hairsp; – & hairsp; Orange spokesman & hairsp; – & hairsp; revealed that 14 proc. of all smartphones sold by the operator in January 2021 are supported by the 5G network.
Do not be deceived by appearances. These 14 percent. it may seem like a low number, but comparing it with other data changes the perspective.
5G smartphones and 5G coverage in Poland
The 5G network in the 2100 MHz band & hairsp; – & hairsp; which Orange calls # hello5G & hairsp; – & hairsp; is in its infancy. It is present only in a few Polish towns, such as Łódź, Wrocław, Kraków, Warsaw and the cities of the Upper Silesian Industrial District.
At the end of 2020, the operator boasted that the # hello5G coverage is covered 6 million people. As it is not difficult to count, it is approx. 16 percent population Polish.
And here it gets interesting. The percentage of customers choosing a 5G smartphone is slightly lower than the percentage of people who can use the 5G network at all in their place of residence. And yet the number of potential customers is further narrowed by the fact that # hello5G is available only in selected, mainly more expensive subscriptions.
This shows that the interest in the next-generation network is, contrary to appearances, very high.
The most popular 5G smartphone in Orange
The operator’s spokesman revealed that customers most often chose the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G model. It is a flagship smartphone that costs PLN 3399 on the free market.
In 2021, the popularity of 5G will surely shoot up not only due to the extension of the range, but also a larger number of affordable smartphones. Only in recent weeks, models such as realme 7 5G, Redmi Note 9T 5G or Galaxy A32 5G have been released.
