Welcome to Shanghai! World's first district with 5G Coverage

Backed by China's telecom PSU 'China mobile' trial runs of world's fastest 5G network officially started in Shanghai’s Hongkou on Saturday, imagine what BSNL and MTNL are doing in India, in the meanwhile
Shanghai: China on Saturday announced that China's largest city by population, Shanghai, is the first city in the world to get 5G telecom facilities and broadband gigabit network both. If this is true then China has left the US and other countries behind in the race to develop next-gen mobile telecommunications facilities. This development has been ably backed by China mobile, Chinese state-owned enterprise. Writing this news in India one thinks about the plight of consumers using BSNL and MTNL mobile service.

If true, China has left the US and others behind

5G is the 5th generation cellular mobile technology the 4G (LTE-A, WiMax), 3G (UMTS, LTE) and 2G (GSM) systems with a download speed that is 10 to 100 times faster than 4G LTE networks.
