The State Coun­cil, China’s cabi­net, pledged faster broad­band and lower price for In­ter­net ser­vices, on Wed­nes­day, ac­cord­ing to Xin­hua News Agency.

China will ac­cel­er­ate con­struc­tion of a high-speed net­work with cheaper charges so as to im­prove peo­ple’s liveli­hood, sup­port “In­ter­net Plus” and foster new growth im­pe­tus, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment re­leased af­ter a State Coun­cil ex­ec­u­tive meet­ing presided over by Pre­mier Li Ke­qiang.

The meet­ing urged tele­com com­pa­nies to quickly pub­lish de­tailed plans for faster and cheaper broad­band ser­vices and free up­grades for con­tracts al­ready signed. Op­ti­cal and broad­band net­works will be fur­ther pro­moted in the coun­try­side to pro­vide broad­band ser­vices for 14,000 vil­lages by the end of this year.
