While we here in the UK seem to be steadily falling behind the rest of the world when it comes to mobile technology, economy and you-name-it, countries in the far corners of the world appear to be steaming ahead of us. Now, Hong Kong (which was still part of the British Empire not so long ago) will be seeing the launch of its second high-speed wireless data provider on April 25th.
Providing this service to the people of Hong Kong is China Mobile, which will offer data download speeds of up to 100Mbps. Furthermore, there will be an offer on the network for Hong Kong customers to use the same 4G services in China as well as their homeland.
China Mobile will be the second 4G internet provider in Hong Kong after CSL. There will be plenty of phones to make use of this fancy new service on as well, as Hong Kong is expected to see the launch of around 20 LTE-enabled handsets. These include the HTC Velocity 4G, LG Optimus True HD LTE and a special LTE edition of the Samsung Galaxy S2.
