Massive deployment of Orange's 5G, which already reaches 295 cities in 38 provinces throughout Spain.
We have been many months talking about 5G, of what it is and what it should offer us, and although the truth is that a couple of years ago we began to test the new generation networks for the first time, our experience with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G was not too complete, first because not there was almost coverage and later due to the energy limitations of the device and the infrastructure non-standalone what are you still using core 4G LTE network.
Nevertheless, in this industry everything evolves at lightning speed, and a few months later we already have a good number of compatible smartphones on the market in practically all ranges except the most basic and inexpensive, almost forcing the main operators to accelerate the massive deployment of their 5G networks that are finally beginning to democratize now.
It is the case of Orange, which proudly announced its deployment plan on its blog and in press releases, meeting deadlines with 121 municipalities a month and a half ago that now become 295 cities within 38 provinces who can now enjoy Orange's 5G network.
The orange operator also dares to affirm that very soon they will reach coverage above 51%, hoping to arrive before the end of this year 2021 to more than 400 cities and towns in Spain combining NSA and DSS technologies. Already in 2022, its deployment plans would be completed exceeding 90% of 5G coverage.
For now, Orange arrives with 5G to the main cities, including Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Zaragoza, San Sebastián, Bilbao, A Coruña, Lugo, León or Santander, among others, in addition to populations of great tourist importance such as Cádiz, Ibiza, Ceuta, Melilla, Gran Canaria, Mojácar, Denia, Formentera or Fuengirola. They also already have coverage in other strategic areas with great business activity and commercial as Cáceres, Salamanca, Córdoba, Elche, Badalona, Logroño or Valladolid.

The numbers are certainly not trivial, and Orange has managed to double its coverage in just 6 weeks, reaching 23% of the population with 5G available in all available bands, including also the 10 MHz awarded in concession to Orange in the last auction of the Ministry, within the spectrum of 3.5 GHz.
