(CNBC) Streaming virtual reality games. Driverless cars. Super-fast downloads of movies. And billions of devices talking to each other. This is the promise of the next-generation mobile internet known as 5G.

The race to roll out 5G is on and the U.S., China and other parts of Asia appear to be taking the lead, while Europe is lagging behind.

Fragmentation in rules across the European Union's (EU) 28 member states, a lack of investment from mobile networks stemming from weak business, and continuing debate over the allocation of radio waves known as spectrum, are the key reasons for the region falling behind.

"Europe is significantly lagging China and North America when it comes to 5G commitments and deployment," Ben Wood, chief of research at CCS Insight, told CNBC in a recent interview.

"In the U.S., we've got intense competitive rivalry between the leading players which is accelerating investment in 5G, and in China there is absolutely no question that they see an opportunity to innovate their own 5G, which would be the first generation of technology where they could really be the undisputed leader."

This is one race in which one should not want to participate, let alone win.

The conventional wisdom in new technology adoption as applicable in the west is it follows the gartner hype cycle. First, there is fast demand in a short span, then kinks are discovered which drops the demand down into a valley whereupon stock analysts write about potential despite and then the kinks are overcome to create an upward wave.

What China has is super-sized potential market for new anything. New technologies, new methods, new business models. That's why so many foreign investors have been making a beeline to start business in China while demanding exclusive use of their technologies despite the historical fact the last time one did, it had ended opiately for China.

China's super-sized potential market means its citizens are all ever-ready and agile to adopt and exploit new technologies to upgrade existing and create new businesses in the fastest most efficient manner in the world. For instance, who would have thought that today China leads the world in mobile payments?

This characteristic of the China market means China has the biggest mass and fastest velocity to bypass the valley of the gartner hype cycle and therefore earn extra mileage in the race to achieve pole position in any new technology while others have to still climb out of the valleys. Therefore, China has super-momentum.

To that, add the other China characteristic of networking; this is not just talking and dealing even with strangers in the same monotonic community at large but also a meeting of minds uniquely canvased by unbroken rules of cultural protocols traceable back centuries.

One other matter comes to mind but it is a weakness that can be transformed into strength. All over the world, thousands of small businesses are wondering how to face the amazon effect which dis-intermediates the middle business layer.  If China can solve this problem of how to help those small businesses retain their roles and continue to thrive, it would be able to help all small businesses all over the world overcome the amazon effect.  

It has already used e-commerce as a marketing tool to help poor farmers in remote areas get funds and customers for their produce.

What 5G can do is to increase the bandwidth for mobile connectivity that will expand and strengthen the performance of the global supply chain right into factories where robotics can cooperate to mass-customize with high precision and thus quality for higher prices in what can be described as the Internet-of-Things (IoT) industrial ecosphere.

Furthermore, transportation as in autonomous vehicles plus other socially-linked applications like 7D marketing can be enhanced using 5G to reduce costs, increase efficiency and derive more profits for re-investment.

Because of its initiative in 5G, China can be the global nucleus of developing and rolling out of this new century's driving factors of growth and modernization not just in industry but also in commerce and society.

Yes. Because China has the 4G/5G market, industry, technology and infrastructure.
Here are five reasons why China will lead the world in 4G/5G which is driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution:

1. China has the world’s largest infrastructure industries which will be connected via 4G/5G networks to the AI Cloud.
2. China has the world’s largest manufacturing industries which will be connected via 4G/5G networks to the AI Cloud.
3. China will have the world’s largest consumer industries which will be connected via 4G/5G networks to the AI Cloud.
4. China will have the world’s largest welfare industries which will be connected via 4G/5G networks to the AI Cloud.
5. China will have the world’s largest technology industries which will invent AI-enabled 4G/5G-connected IoT devices, systems and services.

All based on 4G/5G TD-LTE. Invented in China.

The First Industrial Revolution was driven by steam power.
The Second Industrial Revolution was driven by gas power.
The Third Industrial Revolution was driven by electric power.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution will be driven by information technology in China.

Greed dictates technological advance , with no intellectual property rights China will find it hard to innovate, in the past it has always borrowed or leased the rights to new tech , going it alone with the fore mentioned lack of I.P.R. Would be hard , unless China was to do the same as America and exploit greed .
There are no Ugly women , only those with low self esteem .
