Telecom Provider to Launch 4G Services Soon
For users who purchased iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in Hong Kong will not be able to enjoy 4G services yet as China Mobile is still to provide upgrade services in Shenzhen. As of the moment only ten China Mobile outlets are providing 4G upgrades customers can come in and have their subscription upgraded even without changing their phone numbers.
However an employee of China Mobile that they haven’t been advised on such service since China Mobile has provided 4G services in Shenzhen on a trial basis and to fully avail of 4G the customer needs to purchase a iPhone or a portable device that can access the service. Several residents said that if China Mobile will provide upgrade services they might consider purchasing an iPhone in Hong Kong since iPhone are cheaper compared to Shenzhen.
Although residents can buy iPhones in Hong Kong having it upgraded in Shenzhen might increase phone prices. Residents can also purchase iPhones from Apple stores online and through China Unicom and China Telecom outlets as well. Users said that it’s hard to look for the right provider as China Mobile gives a good reception signal while China Unicom has the fastest 3G services so far.
