China is developing 5G technology and expects to debut a 5G network by 2020, according to a senior mobile communications expert.

“China has always attached great importance to participating in the formulation of international standards, and will hopefully play a leading and central role in making 5G standards,” You Xiaohu, head of the Nanjing-based National Mobile Communications Research Laboratory, told Xinhua on Thursday.

China started research into 5G technology in 2013, and will probably complete a first version of a 5G standard network by 2018, You said, adding that the technology will become more mature over time.

5G technology will boost network speeds 1000 times over, and bring virtual reality, holographic images and other new experiences to people’s lives, You said.
