China’s 5G user base passes a record 400 million


The number of 5G users in China passed a record 400 million in the first quarter – one in every four subscribers – the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said.

China is speeding up 5G base station construction this year, supporting 5G applications in the industrial, education and other sectors and kicking off elderly-friendly 5G services to boost 5G development and the digital economy, the ministry said.

5G is now an “artery” feeding the development of the information society and digital infrastructure construction in China, Zhao Zhiguo, the ministry’s spokesman, said.—APP
