Faster broadband service on way

SHANGHAI residents will be able to subscribe to faster broadband service by the end of this year, the city's biggest Internet provider said yesterday.

China Telecom's fiber optic network will cover the city's urban region, or 6.5 million households, with speeds of up to 20 megabytes per second - up to 10 times faster than current levels.

Meanwhile, Shanghai will upgrade its Wi-Fi network with more hot spots and higher security levels by 2013, the Shanghai Radio Administration Bureau said yesterday. By 2013, Shanghai will have more than 22,000 Wi-Fi hot spots.
