DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Laos - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Laos jumps into 5G before achieving widespread 4G coverage

Laos leapt relatively early into the world of 5G with its network trials and launches, but well before being able to build sufficient market penetration with 4G LTE coverage.

Unitel was the first of the country's four mobile network operators to kick things off with 5G trials in late-2019. This followed similar rounds of testing being conducted by parent company Viettel Group's other subsidiaries in Vietnam, Myanmar, and Cambodia.

Yet it was Lao Telecom (TLC) who stole the march on the market leader, unveiling a commercial 5G service in areas of the capital city, Vientiane. LTC has plans to extend the service into regional areas, however the extent to which it is able to do so may be limited by the amount of network infrastructure that is already in place around the country to support an upgrade to 5G (as opposed to the much higher cost involved with installing brand new sites in previously unserved areas). And with the coverage of LTE networks in Laos still some ways off from being any near universal, the speed of that rollout may be less than spectacular.
