Providers expect a sharp increase in demand for 5G


The network operators expect a surge in demand for the 5G radio standard. “We expect the data volume in our 5G network to continue to rise sharply,” says the head of technology at Vodafone Germany, Gerhard Mack.

Telekom, Vodafone and Telefónica expect increasing demand for 5G. “There are more and more 5G stations, more and more 5G applications and more and more 5G smartphones,” says the head of technology at Vodafone Germany, Gerhard Mack. He points out the advantages of 5G at major events that did not exist in Corona times. Where many people use their smartphones at the same time, smooth Internet surfing is possible thanks to 5G, he emphasizes.

Telefónica Deutschland boss Markus Haas says that the 5G share of the data volume transmitted in his company’s network is still low, but he expects a “massive boost” in the coming months. Every second smartphone that Telefónica is currently selling is already 5G-capable. Telefónica’s 5G network is still relatively small, but it is to be expanded significantly.

A month-long auction for the coveted frequencies ended on June 12, 2019, and four companies committed to pay a total of 6.6 billion euros. Then the expansion began. The furthest is Deutsche Telekom, according to company information, 80 percent of people in Germany can now receive the 5G network of the Bonn group from their homes.

More than 50,000 telecom antennas in around 5,000 cities and municipalities are transmitting in 5G. A location usually has three antennas of a radio standard in order to be able to cover the different directions well.
