TD-SCDMA gaining momentum in China

It appears the Chinese government's force-feeding of TD-SCDMA technology is finally paying off. With the major technology problems surrounding the technology apparently fixed, the Chinese government has told mobile carriers to commence with widespread TD-SCDMA tests. Last year the government ordered the country's operators to stop work on WCDMA trial networks in a bid to give TD-SCDMA an equal footing. And 3G licenses have been on hold until the country's home-grown TD-SCDMA technology actually works commercially.
