China Issues Spectrum to State-Owned Broadcaster to Increase 5G Competition

The Chinese government has granted a 5G trial license to state-owned cable TV operator China Broadcasting Network (CBN) in a bid to accelerate the nationwide deployment of the next-generation wireless technology.

The broadcaster will be allowed to run trials in the 4.9 GHz frequency range in 16 cities including Beijing, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) said Friday in a WeChat post.

The license will boost the nationwide construction of CBN’s 5G networks and make it a strong alternative to the “big three” state-owned wireless carriers — China Mobile, China Unicom, and China Telecom, the ministry added.

Mobile communications industry body GSMA expects China to become one of the world’s biggest 5G markets by 2025, when it could be home to 460 million 5G connections, or 28% of the country’s predicted total.
