The Beijing subway is the first to offer a 5G network across an entire line

How would you like to play high-bandwidth VR games in the subway? While it’s probably a bad idea — imagine a subway packed with people blinded by VR goggles — it might become possible in the near future in Beijing.

Local telecom operator China Mobile has joined hands with one of the operators of the Beijing subway to launch a 5G network on one subway line. The Beijing MTR Corporation equipped all 10 stations along the metro’s Line 16 with super-fast internet access, Chinese state media reported.
