This page provides an overview of the state of 5G internationally. Below you will find tables and charts about 5G rollout and 5G spectrum awards in major international markets.

Overview of 5G developments
Table: Comparison of 5G rollout in international markets
Please note: There may be discrepancies between the reported figures, as the method for calculating the number of base stations is not standardised between regions.
Sources: Data on subscriber numbers and base stations were collected from various sources including regulator announcements.
Chart: Assigned 5G spectrum in international markets (EU data represents average spectrum assigned)
Please note: For the EU, data on spectrum assigned has been averaged out across all EU27. Some individual countries may have more spectrum assigned for 5G, while some may have less or none.
USA data shows all spectrum made available to mobile operators by the FCC. Not all of this spectrum will have been sold to operators so the final amount of spectrum assigned to operators may be slightly lower.
For further information about methodology, see page 32 in the full 5G Observatory report 15.
