To have a better understanding of the market concerns, promotion method as well as its problem in the commercial promotion of 4G TD-LTE network in China, this study made a depth research into Hangzhou, the first city in China to promote 4G TD-LTE on its second phase large-scale trial by means of depth interviews and focus groups. It reveals that the Chinese government and enterprises are now attaching more importance to the independent intellectual property rights of technology standards and global application in terms of the value orientation and as for its implementation methods; it appeals to smooth evolution technology for rapid development. Despite some technical difficulties, 4G TD-LTE network is changing the culture of Hangzhou and improving the quality of the local inhabitants’ life. Based on interviews with core managers and participants involved in the 4G TD-LTE project, the research results will contribute to the understanding of practical problems in the promotion of 4G TD-LTE in China and provide proposals for other cities to apply this technology in the world.
