China to provide 5G coverage for the longest bridge
Amidst the many chants about the network coverage, China has revealed its plans to equip its longest sea bridge with the 5G facility. The Sea Bridge that was just opened last month measures up to 34 miles (an equivalent of 55 km) and takes the record for the longest in the world, as it Hong Kong, Macau and the mainland Chinese city of Zhuhai by road. This was informed by a Chinese media source on Sunday, 11th of November.
The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge now has good coverage of 4G service,” said Fang Zheng, vice general manager of the WLAN office of ZTE, the bridge’s network operator. “Experts and workers have overcome the difficulties of a complex construction environment and the lack of an optical fiber to provide tailored 4G solutions for the bridge and prepare for the future upgrading of 5G service,
Hopefully, Nigeria can take a queue and give Nigerians access to this new phase of internet connectivity with the development of a free and open 3G WiFi along the Lagos third mainland bridge.
