Jeong-Han Kim, senior vice president of Samsung Electronics, has disclosed that Samsung will soon sign a cooperation agreement with an unnamed Chinese telecom operator to build a wireless broadband network throughout China.

Jeong-Han Kim says that upon completion, the network will cover remote rural areas of China, and that KTF, the second largest mobile service operator in South Korea, has adopted its technology in a commercial-use wireless broadband service which is expected to realize a 100% coverage in the first quarter of next year.

Analysts say that once Samsung's plan is smoothly carried out, a large scale layout of the 4G wireless broadband network in China will be triggered, which will bring new business opportunities.

In the United States, Google (GOOG) has attempted to do the same thing, but its wireless efforts have been limited to only a few metropolitan areas.
