China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

Bei­jing will bring fast 4G In­ter­net con­nec­tions to all of its sub­ways by the end of July.

Pas­sen­gers will have ac­cess to 4G net­works on the plat­forms, in the car­riages, at the en­trances and in the tun­nels, Bei­jing MTR Corp said.

Some metro lines, such as Line 4 and Line 9, re­cently in­tro­duced the lat­est global mo­bile stan­dard.

More than 7.93 mil­lion sub­way trips were made on Sun­day, ac­cord­ing to the Bei­jing MTR Corp and Bei­jing Sub­way.

4G reached China late in 2013, and many pub­lic places are not yet cov­ered by the net­works.
