COVID-19 may delay 5G network in Brazil

The worldwide number of 5G connections has grown and exceeded the growth curve of all previous mobile connections, according to the 5G Americas study reported by Meio&Mensagem. 5G mode is the fastest growing wireless cellular technology in new subscribers, with 17.7 million connections worldwide.

According to consultancy Omdia, connections in this model increased 329% between Q3 and Q4 in 2019 worldwide. Although forecasts pointed to the progress of the 5G process in Brazil for next year, the COVID-19 crisis that paralyzed the world may affect the dates.
