Our country has built the world’s largest optical fiber network and 4G network. The number of Internet users has increased from 688 million at the end of 2015 to 989 million at the end of the 13th five year plan.

The report also shows that the speed of 5g business has been fully increased, the number of 5g base stations has reached nearly 720000, the number of 5g terminal connections has exceeded 200 million, and the effect of China’s IPv6 scale deployment is also very obvious.

According to the information previously released by the Ministry of industry and information technology, China has built the world’s largest optical fiber and 4G network, with gigabit optical fiber covering more than 100 million households, and all cities have built optical network cities.

China’s network infrastructure has been further optimized and upgraded, and the Internet penetration rate has exceeded the planning target ahead of schedule. By the end of 2019, the fixed broadband family penetration rate and the mobile broadband user penetration rate will reach 91 and 96 respectively.

As for the fact that the penetration rate of optical fiber users in China ranks the first in the world, it is mainly the action of speed-up and fee reduction continuously promoted by the three major operators. This is also the task of MIIT for mobile telecom and Unicom, and of course, it is also the assessment of their performance.

The Ministry of industry and information technology has issued the

According to the indicator system of Gigabit urban construction, Gigabit broadband will be deployed in more than 300 cities, and demonstration of Gigabit broadband application will be carried out. In the future, more cities will enjoy cheaper Gigabit broadband, and Beijing has started to implement it.
