China has built the world's largest 5G network, with a cumulative total of 718,000 5G base stations completed, Liu Liehong, vice-minister of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), said today, according to cnr.cn.
Previous data showed that by the end of September, China had opened 690,000 5G base stations, and cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hangzhou had achieved contiguous coverage of 5G networks in urban areas.
As of late September, the cumulative number of terminal connections for 5G users in China had exceeded 100 million.
The MIIT said in late September that the next step will be to steadily advance network construction. At the same time, it will strengthen research on 6G development directions and key technologies.
