As of January 2020, commercial 5G networks have been deployed in 378 cities across 34 countries, according to the new VIAVI report, “The State of 5G Deployments.”South Korea leads the world at 85 cities with 5G availability, followed by China with 57, the United States at 50, and the U.K., with 31. In terms of regional coverage, EMEA is ahead, having 168 cities where 5G networks have been deployed, Asia is second with 156 cities, and only 54 cities are covered by 5G across the Americas. Deployments include both mobile and fixed wireless 5G networks, under the report’s parameters.
