Shanghai Internet in national elite

Shanghai has been recognized as one of China’s One-Gbps cities, offering some of the fastest Internet in the country thanks to the city’s booming development of 5G and broadband.

Shanghai is one of 29 cities in China’s first batch of One-Gbps cities, meaning both 5G and broadband bandwidth surpass 1 gigabyte per second, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

By November, Shanghai had built 52,000 outdoor 5G base stations to cover the city. As of September, Shanghai’s latest 1 Gbps broadband network covered 9.6 million families, with download speeds ranking No. 1 nationwide, local officials said.

China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom all offer 5G in Shanghai. Prices have remained the same or fallen.

Mobile networks are a key information infrastructure to help Shanghai boost innovation, push economic transformation and build the city as a global digital hub.

China Mobile recently displayed its latest digital and 5G applications in Shanghai, covering eight areas, such as smart transportations, virtual reality and intelligent agriculture.

The 5G network makes resources and data flow better, is more efficient and boosts the digital economic development of the city, China Mobile said.

Shanghai is developing over 600 5G applications and innovations, offering other cities a “Shanghai Format” on 5G, said the Shanghai Commission of Economy and Informatization, the city’s top industry regulator.

Unisoc, a chip designer based in Shanghai, has announced large-scale production of its latest mobile platform and chip with partners including China Telecom, ZTE, Hisense and TSMC.

It aims to develop chips for “Everyone’s 5G,” said Chu Qing, Unisoc’s chief executive.

In the first half, Unisoc had an 8.4 percent market share in the global mobile chip sector, compared with 4.8 percent a year ago.

It has become one of the top five global vendors, along with Qualcomm, Huawei HiSilicon, MediaTek and Samsung.
