Gizchina News of the week
A Sina tech journalist managed to hop on one of these buses while empty to test out just how fast China’s first 4G LTE network actually is and was shocked by what he discovered!
While in transit the 4G enabled bus managed to peak at a download speed of 60 Mbps with the average staying around 40 Mbps, however while parked up those figures nearly doubled with download speeds reaching a super fast 112 Mbps with an average rounding off to roughly 102 Mbps!
Those speeds are pretty impressive, however this test was conducted on an empty bus on a very early version of the China Mobile 4G infrastructure. It will be interesting to see just how fast China’s 4G LTE is when it is finally released for all of us to use!
