Inside China Tech: Leaders in Tech – what's spectrum and why does it matter for 5G?

  • This week on Inside China Tech we look at why – for the first time – 5G has to tap into extremely high radio frequencies
  • And why space agencies think this might mess with your weather forecast

This week on Inside China Tech, the Post’s Zen Soo speaks with GSMA's Head of Policy for Greater China Joe Guan to find out what's the big deal about 5G and why there is a big spectrum debate going on for the next-generation mobile network.

We also look at why space agencies are concerned that 5G could mess with weather forecasts, and why 5G needs to use radio frequencies that no other mobile network has ever used before.
