China has commercialized 5G standalone (SA) network.

China Telecom said it will offer 5G SA services to over 300 cities in China at a press event held with Qualcomm at Guangzhou on Friday.

South Korea is yet to launch 5G SA networks and is planning to use it for business-to-business applications.

In September, SK Telecom said it believes SA was more suited for the enterprise compared to consumers.

The carrier is ahead in SA development compared to rivals KT and LG Uplus. SK Telecom is already developing and testing telecommunication module for SA.

South Korean carriers rolled out 5G non-standalone (NSA) networks in April, 2019.

Last year, SK Telecom had said it has succeeded in 5G SA communication and will roll out SA services within the first half of 2020.

In August this year, T-Mobile, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, became the first carrier to offer 5G SA service. 

5G SA’s biggest strength is its low latency, which will help with development of autonomous driving, remote healthcare and smart factory services. It will also boost cloud gaming for consumers.
