    2020… cannot wait!!!

    They’ll be forced to cut data plans prices and DSL providers will loose the face given competition speeds increase, so finally we’ll have a nice internet speed here in mainland China!!! All wishes now…

      Even when there will be a 6g network, it will still feel slow because accessing outside will still be a massive bottleneck. So what ever 6g post lte advanced speeds effectively slows down to edge like levels unless you host every single element in a censorship approved data centre and not reference a single service outside. :-). Btw there is zero point in cat 6 support as I have never experienced lte speeds much greater than 20 Mbps. Very little point in 250 Mbps interfaces my provider ignores my speed test records when I showed them my average speeds. They keep on regurgitating their 150 Mbps cat 4 service with a tiny small print at the bottom 😉
