Recently, according to Reuters, Huawei is currently cooperating with European telecommunications giant Altice Portugal, the two sides will jointly develop and launch 5G network in Portugal, and strive to let Portugal lead Europe on 5G network.
According to Alexandre Fonseca, CEO of Altice Portugal, using Huawei routers, the 5G network speed reached 1.5GB/sec. Fonseca said he believes the Portuguese market will be the first market in the world to use 5G technology.
According to Fonseca, Portugal will launch commercial 5G equipment for the first time in 2019 or 2020, while ordinary users will have to go to 2021 or 2022. "Because this business has to consider the relationship between investment and profitability, ordinary users have to use it later," Fonseca said.
At present, Altice Portugal is already the largest telecom operator in Portugal.
