A few days ago, some netizens broke the news and said, “There are a lot of China Unicom’s communication support vehicles here recently, and it must be something to do.” What is curious is, what big trick does Hebei Unicom do?
Coincidentally, at the Shanghai 5G Innovation Development Summit and China Unicom Global Industry Chain Partner Conference, China Unicom first proposed the “7+33+N” 5G network deployment plan and announced Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, and Shenzhen. , Hangzhou, Nanjing, and Xiong’an officially opened 5G trial networks. Based on this analysis, the big news in Xiong’an New District is likely to be Hebei Unicom’s deployment of 5G urban construction.
