    Long Term Evolution (LTE) network coming to HK ??!!

    Never heard of this before

    From RTHK:

    The latest generation of wireless Internet that will allow people to watch a crystal clear movie or live sporting event on the street or on top of a hill is being deployed throughout Hong Kong. The so-called Long Term Evolution, or LTE network, will give super high speeds across the territory and could even mean the end of computers ever needing to be plugged into a wall for a connection to the net. The fourth generation system is being rolled out by the Hong Kong mobile network operator, CSL, in partnership with mainland telecoms equipment maker, ZTE Corporation.

    What an absurd statement by someone who obviously doesn't have a clue. (I mean RTHK of course, not you 100LL )

    Fair and Balanced

    It made the Drudge Report so it must all be the perfect truth.

    Vodafone already launched this LTE/4G thing for end-users in Germany a few days ago, with plans for Euro 39.99, 49.99 and 69.99. The "cheapest" plan is only 7.2 mbps and capped at 10 GB, the most expensive 50 mbps and capped at 30 GB. Apparently they already offered LTE/4G at select locations to corporate customers in September. The USB stick from Samsung is 2.50 Euro/month, there is only one model right now.

    I though this was a "HK first"... ("CSL Launches World’s First Commercial Grade LTE/DC-HSPA+ Network")... and it's only coming in 2011.
