Photo shows that the Chinese soldiers, stationed on the Yongshu Reef of Nansha Islands, south China sea, are using the fourth-generation (4G) mobile network with a cell phone on March 19, 2015.

China Mobile started 4G service on the Yongshu Reef and Zhubi Reef on Friday, part of the Nansha Islands in the South China Sea.

The company said the construction and testing of 4G on the islands started before Chinese Lunar New Year on February 19 and took over one month under severe weather and geographical conditions.

The TD-LTE station on the Yongshu Reef is China’s first 4G station opened through satellite transmission, according to the company.
