This year Xianning becomes Hubei 4G universal telecommunication service pilot. Currently Hubei Provincial Government Procurement Center is purchasing required goods and relevant service by invitation to bid for this project.
In 2018 the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and the Ministry of Finance (MOF) deeply carry out universal telecommunication service pilot work across the country to promote 4G network construction in rural and remote areas. Xianning is approved as 2018 universal telecommunication service pilot area after authorized by MIIT and MOF, recommended by the Finance Department of Hubei Province and Hubei Provincial Commission of Economy and Information Technology, and declared by Xianning Municipal Government. And there are 64 administrative villages to become pilot sites in Xianning.
Based on the principle of guiding by central finance, supporting by local government and mainly promoting by enterprises, Hubei Communications Administration defined the target task of universal telecommunication service, that is, local government will provide relevant policy support, and enterprises are responsible for 4G network construction, business development and operation maintenance to realize the target task.
These 64 pilot villages are distributed in six counties or districts, including 4 in Xian’an district, 2 in Jiayu County, 15 in Tongcheng County, 23 in Chongyang County, 12 in Tongshan County, and 8 in Chibi City. (By Pang Yun/Xiangcheng Metropolis Daily)
