Shanghai Jumps to 4G


Why crawl when you can walk? For that matter, why walk when you can jump? That seems to be the attitude that China’s taking, implementing major revisions to its wireless networks–starting with Shanghai.

As if Asia wasn’t far enough ahead of the West in bringing the newest tech to its citizens, China’s decided to give 3G the cold shoulder and bring its billion-plus over to 4G territory.

This is only a start, and it’s one of the nation’s most crowded and connected cities getting the speed bump. Breaking new ground is a testament to the resilient evolution of our mobile universe, but this slams the snail-like pace the U.S. appears to be moving at.

If you’re wondering what 4G is, it’s very fast mobile data. The kind of fast that gives you 100MB/s HD video to a handheld. Streaming. Smoothly. Forget TV receivers and Bluetooth payment systems: HD news streams on the subway are now the new cool. At least for a few million people.
