The Shenzhen Metro will soon be offering high-speed internet to passengers via wi-fi installed in stations and trains. The system will be rolled out in June, according to the Kuang Chi Institute of Advanced Technology, Bendibao reports.
The speed of the network will be two to four times faster than traditional networks, which will still be exceedingly slow compared with global standards.
The specific date of the introduction of the technology, which is currently being developed by Southern Galaxy Valley Co., will be announced soon. Li Chunlin, deputy head of the Shenzhen Kuang Chi Institute of Advanced Technology, said this will also solve the problem that was encountered last autumn when several trains were halted due to the interference with the subway’s wifi system.
