The network speed of China’s Internet ranks only 93rd in a global list led by South Korea and Japan.
The low speeds not only affect China’s more than 538 million Web users, but also hamper the country’s IT industry.
South Korea has the most advanced network games and network video industries in the world. One important reason is that it has the fastest broadband network in the world.
As China’s IT industry is starting research projects on the 3rd generation of telecommunication technologies, the 4th generation of telecom technologies are actually already spreading in many countries.
China should catch up with leading countries in this field by increasing its network speed first. That would benefit both common net users and the whole IT industry.
