Excerpt from Chinese original-
Beijing is about to become the first giga city in China. Beijing has begun to popularize Gigabit broadband on a large scale this year. The public can say goodbye to the annoying buffer waiting problem when watching online video.
The common feature of 5G and Gigabit broadband is that it can achieve ultra-high speed download speed of 1G or more per second. When 5G base stations and 5G mobile phones are not yet popular, Gigabit broadband has officially appeared in Beijing on a large scale. Beijing Unicom said that through the construction of basic network facilities, to build 5G capital and Gigabit city in 2019, Beijing home fiber broadband will also speed up free of charge. Previously, China Unicom only launched Gigabit broadband in a few individual districts in Tongzhou. At present, most of the residential areas in China that can install Unicom broadband can already install Gigabit broadband.
According to reports, the current downlink speed of Beijing Unicom’s home broadband has reached 300M bandwidth, and the price of single-gigabit broadband has been lowered from 1,000 yuan per month to 599 yuan per month. What is intriguing is that citizens choose mobile phones to bundle Gigabit broadband package services, and the price is much cheaper than buying broadband. According to Beijing Unicom’s Gigabit broadband package, the monthly fee is 299 yuan.
