5G in global comparison

Telecommunications operators worldwide are focusing on upgrading their mobile networks to 5G

Aachen, 2021/06/07 - The global roll-out of mobile networks to the new 5G standard is unstoppable in its progression. With our unique crowdsourcing analyses, we provide a deep insight into how advanced the 5G rollout is in individual countries.

In Germany, millions of people are already covered by 5G, according to operators such as Telekom, Vodafone or O2. Similar successes are also being celebrated by countries such as South Korea and the USA, which are building at a faster pace than many European countries. The Netherlands and Switzerland are the exception, as they show that the 5G rollout can move faster in Europe.

Hakan Ekmen, CEO Telecommunication at umlaut: "It is exciting to see how the 5G rollout continues to take shape. We can already see many countries where 5G is an integral part of the mobile network, which is great for all users."
