On January 3, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced that it had issued a license to use the frequency band 5G test frequency to China Radio and Television, agreeing to deploy 5G networks in 16 cities, including Beijing. China Radio and Television is the fourth 5G license plate, the Daily Economic News reporter noted that just last month, China Radio and Television obtained the 192 segment of the public mobile communication network number, which is also the 5G number segment of China Radio and Television.
The permit marks the official acquisition of 5G frequency in the region, helping to further boost its 5G network and industry applications, while providing more options for individual and industry users to access 5G services, the ministry said.
Reporters noted that at the 2019 World 5G Conference Forum, China Radio and Television Chairman Zhao Jingchun revealed that China Radio and Television intends to start radio and television 5G official commercial in 2020, while conducting personal user business and vertical industry business.
China radio and television 5G construction has been launched in 2019 Q4. On November 23,2019, China Radio and Television 5G Station opened in Changsha, the first 5G base station and the world's first 700 MHz 5G base station after it acquired a 5G licence to become China's fourth-largest operator.
the 700mhz spectrum resource has always been a high-quality frequency resource for chinese radio and television. This time, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has allocated a frequency band to China Radio and Television, which happens to be one of the 5G bands of China Mobile. News of China Radio and Television's cooperation with China Mobile 5G has also emerged before, and this time getting the same band could draw more speculation in the industry.
A radio and television insider told the Daily Economic News that China Radio and Television spoke with China Mobile and the State Grid about 5G co-construction. The person also told reporters that China radio and television pre-determined 16 pilot areas, and radio and television departments network integration negotiations related.
