China's information consumption surges in 2018

February 11, 2019


Abstract : China's information consumption saw a rapid increase last year, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).

BEIJING, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- China's information consumption saw a rapid increase last year, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).

Total business volume of the telecommunication sector rose by 137.9 percent from the previous year, the MIIT has said.

Services of 4G continued to develop last year, with the number of users reaching 1.17 billion.

The average household usage of mobile traffic reached 6.25GB per month in December 2018, more than double the amount in the same period in the previous year, the ministry said.

The ministry attributed the soaring information consumption to Chinese telecommunications operators' measures of increasing Internet connection speed and cutting connection costs.

Wen Ku, director of the telecom department at the MIIT, said the ministry would make continued efforts to expand Internet coverage, improve service quality and release the potential of the digital economy.
