Liquid Telecom is set to launch the first 5G wholesale roaming service in South Africa.
Available from early 2020 in all major South African cities, this latest fifth generation of mobile internet connectivity will enable wholesale operators to create innovative, ultra-fast and scalable digital services for their customers.
The 5G network will help accelerate the evolution of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) in South Africa.
“This breakthrough 5G wholesale service will create of innovation in every aspect of South African society and industry. For the first time, mobile network operators and ISPs will have open access to Liquid Telecom’s new 5G mobile network,” says Strive Masiyiwa, Chairman, Liquid Telecom.
Liquid Telecom will use its 3.5GHz spectrum asset to build the 5G network and provide nationwide 5G wholesale services to the market early in 2020.
One of the most profound implications of the new service will be its impact on South Africa’s 4IR ambitions, where connected devices communicate with each other, automating the factory floor without the need for human intervention.
The fusion of 5G, IoT and other technologies like AI and robotics will touch and transform every facet of business, creating entirely new ways of serving existing needs.
