While Hong Kong is progressing with the next-gen 5G network (e.g. mmWave), 3D-visualization with spatial data published by HKGov’s Smart City initiative could offer a unique angle in our next-gen 5G rollout which is expected to include more dense cells with even higher throughput but weaker in coverage.
