BEIJING - More people in China will have broadband Internet access and enjoy an improved Internet surfing experience thanks to a government campaign to increase broadband coverage and width.
Deputy Minister of Industry and Information Technology Shang Bing said in an online press conference that the ministry will prioritize the project in order to raise broadband coverage and width this year.
China will offer another 35 million families optical-fiber broadband access by the end of this year, Shang said.
"In 2011, the country's broadband users with a width higher than 4 megabits (M) accounted for 40 percent of all users, and we plan to raise it by 10 percentage points this year," Shang said.
