China Unicom closes part of 5g network to kill the first ten million users: Official refutation

Recently, it has been reported that the first 10 million 5g users have been treated as mice, and Unicom and China Mobile have mercilessly abandoned them.

According to the above news, after China Unicom announced that it would close the 5g NSA (non independent Networking) mode base station, another user found that his 5g NSA mobile phone has been unable to access China Telecom’s 5g network, which directly affected the first 10 million 5g users, and then caused widespread concern among netizens.

China Unicom closes part of 5g network to kill the first ten million users: Official refutation

In response, China Unicom and China Telecom clearly replied that the above information was untrue, and there was no so-called closure of the non independent 5g network.

China Unicom said that the so-called “China Unicom announced that it will shut down 5gnsa base station” is actually a rumor. First of all, even in the 5g network of independent networking mode, it does not mean that the early 5gnsa mobile phone can not be used. Second, more importantly, China Telecom has not shut down 5gnsa base station.

China Telecom said that in the initial stage of 5g network construction, independent networking and non independent networking mode did mix and parallel for a period of time, but with the progress of technology and the improvement of industrial chain, they will eventually transition to independent networking mode.

However, the relevant person of China Telecom also made it clear that, first of all, even in the 5g network of independent networking mode, it does not mean that the early 5gnsa mobile phones could not be used; secondly, more importantly, China Telecom did not shut down the 5gnsa base station.

“4G network base stations have not been removed or shut down. How can 5g base stations and networks that have just been built be removed or shut down?” China Telecom said the relevant person.

5g network construction is divided into NSA (non independent Networking) and SA (independent Networking). NSA is the core network shared by 5g and 4G networks, while SA is the independent 5g core network. Relatively speaking, 5g network with independent networking mode has faster speed, higher bandwidth and better overall performance.
