China Issues 4G Licenses to its Top Three Mobile Carriers

In what was a foregone conclusion, China lent 4G licenses to three of its mobile carriers. The companies that got the allowance include: China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom. And of these China Mobile happens to be the largest mobile carrier of its kind in the world.  

With the issuance of the TD-LTE standard, it is China Mobile which will be the real benefactor since it has the infrastructure already in place. The other two smaller carriers have expressed their preference for FDD-LTE, which is more popular on a global level. The Chinese authorities have also allowed China Mobile to utilize the fixed-line broadband services which were previously limited to the other two smaller carriers. 

The FDD-LTE standard will be licensed in 2014 and then China Unicom and China Telecom will fully benefit from the service as well. China Mobile meanwhile has poor service on its 3G network. That may be one reason it is switching to 4G technology

Meanwhile, China Mobile has expressed its approval at being awarded the twin licenses of 4G and fixed-line broadband services by the Chinese government. With the advent of 4G technology such other giants as Huawei and ZTE are to utilize the service along with some local Internet organizations. China Mobile may be the only Sino-carrier that does not offer an Apple iPhone connection on its network. Now that it has 4G technology, a deal just might be in the pipeline.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
