True. 4G may tailor better to widely distributed rural backwaters due to greater distance in coverage.

4G's lower frequency/longer wavelength interference is comparable to light beams, where red hues are visible during sunsets and sunrises as light's low frequency/long wavelengths seep through water and smog molecules congregated near horizon thanks to gravity. Blue spectrum band of higher frequency and shorter wavelength or absorbed or bounced off by them, thus, unable to reach our eyes during dusk & dawn.

Whereas, highly dense and populated urban settings benefit more from the fifth generation spectrum, which uses higher radio frequency with shorter wavelengths. Similar to blue color band analogy, 5G drawback is they don't travel as far as explained above, but tailor more devices per area.

It is said when cooking frogs alive. Turning up the heat suddenly, the frog would jump out. But turning up heat gradually, they'll stay in the pan to meet their culinary fate.

Same can be said about technology. Gradual tech advancement cycles like small updates won't be met with societal resistance. But great leaps in upgrades may conflict with humanity's wiring; triggering fear response as our comfortable habituation with the old, familiar routines are undermined. A reoccurring theme for thousands of years.

Whether the manipulation of 4G speed is warranted, or just a froggy knee jerk fabrication, remains to be seen as adoptions pick up.

Lets hope 5G tech is used more for education innovation than for mere games - insidious development of even greater smartphone addiction for our youth. As @Napoleon said, capitalism and education are not good bedfellows.

Updating this topic:

HuoLala (货拉拉- 拉货搬家) is a intra/inter town moving company growing in nationwide popularity. Their variety of vehicles, slapped with their orange logo, are ever more conspicuous in Kunming as well.

Order their services via their app, which has over 50 million downloads in one app store alone. Look for them on your Chinese mobile app store, though not Play Store?

Different sizes of vehicles can be selected according to your specific need. Over tens of millions of Huolala drivers at your fingertips, 365 days a year.

The word on the street is they are cheaper and more efficient than traditional moving companies with branches outside the Mainland in Asia such as Bangkok, Manila, Singapore, Taipei, and HK.

Has anyone tried them?

There were cases in the news where foreigners adopted Chinese orphans and raised them back in home country to a life of servitude , or worse.

Stricter screening policies were emplaced for foreigners applying for Chinese adoptions since. Strangely, parents being overweight was one the factors for denying applicants.

Thank you for the beautiful photographs Fabio. We look forward to more Yunnan culture, wildlife, and landscape through your lens. Happy journeys with Vera.

Whether snow leopards, yaks, llamas, or these funky monkeys, the sheer amount of fur these guys sport at cold, high altitudes speaks volume of evolutionary natural selection and adaptivity of our mammalian kins.

But Carl also spins breakbeat, which is a mixture of funk, jazz and R&B. So Detroit techno shouldn't be the sole answer as that limits his range. Darn, I was hoping to win this. Next time.

Since we're on the subject of Hang Lung Spring 66, Crystal Jade Golden Palace restaurant on the 6th floor may be worth a visit after experiencing TeamLab on the 2nd floor.

Their sister restaurant in Singapore received a Michelin one star:[...]

Acclaimed dishes are their BBQ pork (炒烧肉) hung on racks. The dongpo meat (东坡肉) looks succulent. The sweet sour pinnaple fried and cooked fish is also tasty. Portions of other dishes like steamed eggplants are quite generous and delicious as well. A group of staffers can be seen preparing steamed pork buns (小笼包) behind see-through glass.

If you're closer to Nanya mall, Crystal Jade has a store there too, I think. And another one somewhere else in Kunming.

Our new editor is on a roll. Pumping out articles seemly every few days. We appreciate your super work ethic. Thank you!

This TeamLab future amusement park looks like a place where children would enjoy. Per Vera's descriptions, an unique interactive medium to unleash your child's creativity. Heck, the kid in me would be just as giddy. Being immersed in all that glow in dark black light is already enough to wow me, let alone DIY art works animated into life and interacting with others. Pretty cool.

For parents thinking about where to take their hyperactive kids with too much pent up energy, the new Aegean Shopping Mall on Baiyun Road No. 168 features a sizable ice skating ring with ice hockey classes what not. Also, another enormous two storey jungle cage with zip lines, trampolines, and assortment of bouncy objects & balls, and challenging climbing obstacles to satisfy the inner ape in all of us.
