China has made initial achievements in building the world’s largest fifth generation mobile network, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said.

The country had built a total of 792,000 5G base stations by the end of February, with the number of mobile terminals connected to the network reaching 260 million, Liu Liehong, vice minister of the MIIT, told a press conference yesterday.

The ministry also estimated 5G mobile phone shipments in China would account for 80 percent of the total shipments in the second half of this year.

China aims to build more than 600,000 5G base stations in 2021. The MIIT has pledged efforts to promote the construction and application of 5G networks in an orderly manner.
