According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, China has built nearly 1.6 million 5G base stations, making it the world’s largest 5G network.
China has the world’s largest mobile broadband and optical fiber network, according to Vice-Minister of Industry and Information Technology Zhang Yunming, and network quality has reached or even surpassed that of some developed countries.
According to Zhang, 5G has been implemented in a variety of industries, including transportation, medical care, education, culture, and tourism, and the industrial internet has been implemented in 45 major sectors of the Chinese economy thanks to wireless technology.
The move is part of a plan to increase the number of 5G base stations to 2 million by the end of the year, up from 1.43 million in early March.
Strong 5G demand on the Chinese mainland has made it the world’s largest 5G market, accounting for more than 75% of global 5G connections by the end of 2021.
The number of 5G connections in China is expected to reach 892 million by the end of 2025, according to a recent analysis by GSMA, an international association of mobile operators.
