China kicks off commercialised 5G services

China Economic Net –  November 01, 2019


BEIJING: China officially kicked off commercialisation of 5G services on Thursday, with the nation’s big three telecom operators rolling out their 5G data plans.

The move shows consumers can finally pay to access the superfast speed of 5G as more than 86,000 5G base stations have already entered services in China.

Chen Zhaoxiong, Vice-Minister of Industry and Information Technology, the nation’s industry regulator, said China has been working hard to extend 5G network coverage. By the end of this year, more than 130,000 5G base stations will enter into service to support the network, marking one of the world’s largest 5G deployments.

The big three telecom operators, China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, for the first time chose to set tariffs by internet speed rather than data allowance. For instance, China Unicom prices the data plan, which allows peak speed of 500Mbps, at 199 yuan. For those who want to enjoy peak speed of 1Gbps, they will have to pay at least 299 yuan.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that
    that you should write more about this subject matter, it might not be a
    taboo matter but typically people don’t discuss such topics.
    To the next! Many thanks!!
