WUHAN, Oct. 31 2019 (Xinhua) -- The branches of Chinese major telecom operators in central China's Hubei Province announced Thursday the launch of commercial 5G applications in the province.
Wuhan City, the capital of Hubei, is expected to have 10,000 5G base stations by the end of 2019, said Song Qizhu, head of Hubei Provincial Communication Administration.
China Telecom has established a 5G network covering airports, railway stations and other areas in the city, which will also help boost the digital and intelligent transformation of the industries with 5G technologies, said Li Hongbo, general manager of the company's Hubei branch.
China Mobile Hubei Branch has activated 1,580 5G base stations in the city as of mid-October, achieving the 5G coverage of universities, transportation hubs and other densely populated areas, according to the branch.
WUHAN, Feb. 2020 (Xinhua) -- China's first trial 5G wireless network on a college campus has been established in the Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China Mobile said Wednesday. The network will enable applications of technologies such as online distant learning featuring augmented reality and virtual reality and campus patrolling with night-vision drones, said an official with HUST, which is located in central China's Hubei Province. The network was developed by a laboratory jointly set up by HUST, China Mobile's Hubei branch and tech company Ericsson in June last year. So far, China Mobile has installed 100 5G base stations in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, and is launching large-scale tests, according to Fan Bingheng, general manager of the company's Hubei branch. Test data showed that the 5G network is able to provide a peak single-user download speed of 1.6 Gbps, nearly 16 times faster than that of 4G service.
