4G advertisements can be found everywhere in China now. According to market forecasts, by the end of 2019 China will be the world's largest 4G market with more than 700 million 4G users. Video traffic will take up more than 50 percent of the total mobile data flow, from a current percentage of 35 in 2013.
For people who "don't quite get it, but think it's terrific", 4G is something that can provide clearer and smoother online video services. What users need to do is to change SIM cards and traffic packages. Actually, the coming of 4G era will herald a rash of new products and applications. More industries will be brought into the smart era.
Prediction 1: News transmission
For journalists, especially television reporters, the 4G high-speed network will be of great help.
Reporters won't need to use large TV trucks to make live television outside broadcasts in the future. Simply by inserting a 4G card into a shoulder camera and connecting with the 4G network, live high-definition images can be sent back to the office while the camera is running. In the past, outside broadcasting either required a news studio in the field, or a satellite truck on the spot.
It is safe to predict that once the 4G high-speed network has gained commercial popularity, the technology will be used ever more frequently for the live broadcasting of sports games and other major events.
