China Mobile, China Unicom, China Telecom gain TD-LTE licenses
The three major carriers in China have been issued licenses to operate <a href="" rel='nofollow'>TD-LTE networks</a> in the country. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has <a href="" rel='nofollow'>provided</a> the licenses to China Mobile, China Telecom, and China Unicom today, which opens the door to Chinese mobile users being able to use faster mobile connections in the future. <br />
<br />
While the TD-LTE licenses is a good start and extremely useful for China Mobile, <em>The Next Web</em> <a href="" rel='nofollow'>reports</a> that China Telecom and China Unicom may be receiving FDD-LTE licenses in the near future, and thanks to TD-LTE's China-specific nature, allows for a wider array of 4G-capable devices to operate on their networks. <br />

China Mobile is believed to be the most advanced of the three in terms of 4G roll-out, with the company building the network since early 2012. It has also <a href=" rlds.largest.carrier/" rel='nofollow'>been revealed</a> that a subsidiary of China Mobile started to accept pre-orders for the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>iPhone 5s</a> and <a href="" rel='nofollow'>iPhone 5c</a> yesterday, an early sign that the carrier and Apple had <a href="" rel='nofollow'>completed an agreement</a> that has taken six years to finalize. China Mobile is thought to have somewhere in the region of 740 million subscribers, and has <a href=" 5s/" rel='nofollow'>not sold iPhones</a> to customers previously, something which will give Apple a considerable user boost for its smartphone.
