Shanghai to expand 5G coverage to all tunnels, bridges


All of Shanghai’s tunnels and cross-river bridges will be covered by 5G signal by the end of this year, which will complete the “last link” of 5G coverage in the city’s downtown area.

A six-party agreement was signed in Shanghai on Tuesday to confirm this goal, attended by mobile carriers, tunnel operators, and construction firms and witnessed by government officials.

Bridges and tunnels are the “last link” of 5G network construction in the city, representing inte-gration and resource sharing regarding the building of transportation and information infrastructure.

It helps to build Shanghai as a smart, green, harmoni-ous and civilized city, said the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Economy and Information.

The 5G signal will cover all 32 tunnels and four bridges across the Huangpu River connecting Puxi and the Pudong New Area by the end of 2021. Cur-rently, some corner areas in the tunnels and bridges only receive 2G to 4G signals, Shanghai Daily reported.—APP
