It is learned from the Ningbo Branch of China Mobile that after careful testing of the 5G network of 56 major cities in China by the headquarters of China Mobile, Ningbo has been included in the top ten outstanding cities of 5G network. To be specific, Ningbo ranks No.1 in terms of the network testing results and No.4 in terms of the total scores.
As the important basis of the new-generation digital economy, the 5G technology can not only bring about the faster network speed but also drive the in-depth integration of the communications technology and the entity economy, thus resulting in a series of new applications, new models and new industrial patterns. In
recent years, Ningbo has been making “5G +” the booster for the high-quality development of the digital economy and the transformation and upgrading of manufacturing to speed up the 5G infrastructure construction. As a result, a range of “5G +” application pilots have become the breakthrough points for the industrial transformation and upgrading.
According to statistics, by the end of June, there had been 8,488 base stations for 5G, accomplishing over 80% of the annual objective. Among others, 6,051 base stations were newly built in 2020, 2.48 times the number built in 2019. Currently, the 5G signal can cover the whole central urban area, the urban areas of the districts and counties, the major central areas of townships and towns, the major industrial parks and zones, the ports and the major tourist resorts of Ningbo.
“It is proposed at the 8th plenary session of the 13th session of the municipal party committee that Ningbo will build the pilot area for high-quality development of manufacturing, implement the ‘No.1 Project’ of digital economy, and strengthen its pilot demonstration of ‘5G + industrial Internet’. It will accelerate the integrated application of such new-generation information technologies as 5G, block chain and artificial intelligence, and build itself a leading industrial Internet city and a featured software city of China.” said a person in charge from Ningbo Economic and Information Technology Bureau. In future, Ningbo will continue to speed up the construction of the 5G network coverage, the 5G innovative integration applications and the cultivation of the 5G industrial chains, accomplish the objective of 10,000 5G base stations by the end of this year, and achieve over 25% of the 5G full coverage construction target, thus making more contributions to the building of Ningbo as an “important window” model of Zhejiang Province
