Colombia is already taking the first steps towards the fifth mobile generation with 5G pilot tests in five cities of the country in the midst of the pandemic. The 5G plan is focused on industrial transformation and not just on providing higher speed services to users. There is awareness of the meaning of 5G as an opportunity for digital transformation of the production models that drive industry 4.0. With the 40 pilot tests that were performed in 2020, Bogotá is consolidated as one of the cities in Latin America to be an epicenter of 5G development. Anyway, so far, no operator gave a commercial deployment date for 5G.
