Three Carriers Phone Setting for China 4G

China 4G

What is 4G?

China 4G was launched in December 20013 by three network operators, China Unicom, China Mobile and China Telecom.

4G stands for the "fourth generation" of cell phone handsets... (1G was the old analogue system, 2G was the digital handsets that we were using a few years ago, with 2.5G representing handsets with data capabilities over GPRS).

4G is all about data, and letting cell phones and mobile computers surf the 'net using Broadband speeds over a mobile phone network. The features you can get from 4G are as follows:

  • Super-fast surfing and downloads: 4G offers speeds in the Megabit range not the Kilobit range - offering a much faster download service than we've been used to in China.
  • Download video: This was the big selling point when 4G launched - the ability to watch streamed video clips on your handset - this can be live TV, sports snippets, music, news headlines, weather forecasts, adult content, or movie trailers.
  • Video calls: Make and receive video calls to/from other 4G users. See who you're talking to in real time
  • Pictures: 4G phones can take still digital pictures as well as coping with video. You can send photos to other 3G users, as well as to users with non-4G phones that use MMS. Data speeds are considerably faster than a standard 2.5G MMS phone.
  • Location-based services: See a map of where you are, and where to find nearest shops, banks, etc (Location info). Some handsets, like the Apple iPhone have built-in GPS for navigation
  • Games: Download games up to 30 times faster than on a standard GSM phone, and play online games such as Bomberman, Splinter Cell and the old favorite Scrabble.

China 4G Networks:

China’s three state-run mobile carriers in August, 2013 completed the first phase of their 4G network deployments. China Telecom’s CDMA2000 network now covers 342 cities and is expected to expand to 500 cities by the end of 2014.China Unicom has conducted two phases of WCDMA network deployment, covering 284 cities.

Due to the slow commercialization of TD-SCDMA technology, China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA network will expand to a total of 238 cities by the end of this year.
