When I research this information it really varies , some countries like China technically may have had it first but I don’t think they implemented it to citizens before South Korea, so the information is not laid out. I haven’t found that website yet.

looks like the order is South Korea first rolled it out then China followed by the United States and then the UK.

The thing to remember is “countries” don’t roll out 5G. Telecom companies do. And they are governed by market forces and what not. I imagine most installs are like those in the US - very limited and small scale.

1. Korea
2. China
3. USA
4. UK

The metric is the number of cities with 5G service available along with the number of deployed base stations.

If you want to look at the number of 5G subscribers:

1. China - 10 million
2. Korea - 5 million
3. USA and UK - ??

I just hope no one here is trying to correlate 5G rollouts with other completely unrelated human health events.

No. Its disputing those facts that the rollout of 5G does NOT correlate to the order the virus is spreading in countries. it’s a debunked fake conspiracy theory.

I was curious though how available 5G will really be this year based on who is on board and was curious who was leading the way
