China to end domestic data roaming charges
Smartphone users can access the internet anywhere in the country without extra fees
We all know that data roaming charges can apply when you use your smartphone abroad -- but in China, people also need to pay more when they travel across provinces.

They’re also expanding 4G coverage to give everyone access to services like streaming and mobile payment -- whether they live in the wealthy coastal cities or the inner hinterlands.
