Is 5G invented by Huawei?

So far as I can tell, it was "invented", by the ITU.

Is there any company in USA/UK has 5G?

Are you talking about phone manufacturers or mobile phone providers?  I'm not aware of 5G being available anywhere yet, except for testing.

Cheong Tsoi‍ Lots of UK companies are working on 5G at the moment - the IET recently had a conference on 5G and there was lots of interesting information about what UK businesses and universities are doing

The videos from this years event will be posted here but not all are up there yet. However you can see the videos from the 2017 and 2018 conferences on IET.tv


The IET sectors team also has some good information about what the UK Government is doing in the field of 5G - you can read more about it here

Look at the news and I learnt that China has built 40 times more 5G base stations than in the USA.

That's hardly surprising.  It would be a bit odd if they had a Samsung lab or an LG lab.

Just look at the news last night, UK is welcoming 5G from HUAWEI to come to UK. What a great news as a Chinese!

Huawei has shown the public their office in China this Wednesday, and it looks like a Castle in Europe. Their lab is very advanced.

This Thursday, Huawei has filed a law suit to the U.S. government for being discrimination to their products.

British is more wise in handling technology than the American.

Germany is also open to welcome Huawei as its supplier.

5G is 100 times faster than 4G.

So, why not using 5G.....:-)

Because it's too expensive.  We don't have the mobile phone infrastructure in place to support it.  Very few customers have phones that support it.  In many countries, they haven't even allocated any frequencies for it yet.

The cost for Huawei to build 5G base station is only 1/10 of that in the U.S.
It is not expensive to own 5G network.
Huawei is going to launch its 5G mobile phone and they are not expensive compares to iPhone! :-)

The latest on 5G in the UK as detailed in Parliament recently
https://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefing/Summary/CBP-7883 

Cost is one issue, but 'value' and other issues such as national and personal data security are becoming evermore important as the backlash against big tech, cyber vulnerabilities, misuse of personal data and messaging, and mistrust of overseas technology companies grows.
