On the afternoon of May 22, the strategic cooperation agreement on 5G network construction and industrial development was signed between Huai'an and Jiangsu provincial communication enterprises. The city's strategic partnership with Jiangsu Telecom, China Mobile, Unicom and China Tower was formally established in promoting its 5G network facilities.
It is not only an important measure to implement the construction of "Smart Jiangsu" by Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government, but also a powerful solution to accelerate the 5G layout in Huai'an, marking that the construction of its 5G has speeded up and its development of information technology has entered a new stage. This year, the city has thoroughly implemented the arrangements and requirements of the CPC Central Committee, the State Council and Jiangsu Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government by planning the "New Infrastructures" represented by 5G ahead of time, launching the "Huai'an 8 Rules" for 5G promotion as well as accelerating infrastructure construction in this field. Besides, pilot applications in advanced manufacturing, modern logistics, telemedicine and other key areas have been carried out, effectively ensuring the epidemic prevention and control, and maintaining the expansion of effective investment and economic stability.
Agreements have been reached between Huai'an and the four major commutation enterprises on further deepening and expanding strategic cooperation, improving the level of Huai'an informatization, and jointly promoting the construction of Huai'an 5G network and industrial development in 2020-2025. At present, 1836 5G base stations have been built in the city, with an investment of 1 billion yuan and 4,000 stations to be completed in the whole year. After completion, the full coverage of 5G network in the downtown area of cities and counties will be greatly realized.
