Wuhan to establish Hubei’s first 5G demonstration zone

Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, will establish the province’s first 5G demonstration zone in the Central Business District(CBD), according to a 5G cooperation agreement signed between China Mobile and local authorities on September 3.

According to the agreement, China Mobile will take advantage of technological advantages of large-scale network construction and product development to build a “dual Gigabit infrastructure network”, so as to promote the deep integration of 5G technology and traditional industries.

China Mobile has teamed up with local authorities to pilot 5G services in Wuhan, witnessing central China’s first 5G smart street-lamp built in the Jianghan District. The 5G coverage for commercial use in Jianghan is expected to be completed in October.(hubei.gov.cn by Zhang Yawei)
