Asean implementation of 5G fragmented, studies reveal

Major concern: 5G monetisation has been the telecommunication industry’s biggest bottleneck and is contributing to delays in the implementation of the technology.

THE adoption of 5G is shaping up to be a bit of a conundrum in East Asia, especially in Asean, as implementation is still looking like a mixed bag when seen from the angle of respective countries.

A report from November 2022 by Capacity Media reveals that while 5G enactment has forged ahead in manufacturing-heavy countries such as China, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea, the push in many other parts of the region have not been as enthusiastic.
