South Korea’s LG U+ likely to buy Huawei equipment for 5G network
Korean mobile telephony operator LG U+ is likely to acquire network equipment for the provision of 5G services from Chinese vendor Huawei, Korean press reported the telco’s Vice Chairman Kwon Young-soo, as saying. “Huawei’s equipment seems highly efficient, while that of Samsung Electronics and Nokia is similar,” he said. “Unless something major comes up, we will select Huawei’s equipment,” the executive said on the sidelines of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Shanghai, China. The executive also said that company’s investment in 5G infrastructure will continue as planned. LG U+ had also selected the Chinese company for the deployment of LTE network infrastructure in 2013. The Korean telco also used equipment from Samsung Electronics, Nokia and Ericsson for LTE deployments. Kwon said LG U+ will also choose four equipment partners for 5G deployments, according to the reports. The executive said LG U+ will announce final contractors for the deployment of 5G network infrastructure by the third quarter of this year. Earlier this month, South Korea has completed a tender process through which it awarded spectrum in both 3.5 GHz and 28 GHz bands for the provision of 5G services. The government had made available a total of 280 megahertz in the 3.5 GHz spectrum band and 2,400 megahertz in the 28 GHz band. The spectrum was divided into 28 blocks and 24 blocks. Participant operators SK Telecom, KT, and LG U+ had a 10 block cap per spectrum band.
