Xu Binyan, vice director of the Tianjin Cyberspace Administration Bureau, noted that Tianjin has an ambitious target to be the country's top 5G city in a bid to benefit from the digital revolution and industrial upgrades.

Tianjin Mobile has launched a fiber-optic network through which the data exchange process is greatly increased. It has more than 500 optical nodes, which benefit Tianjin, its neighbor Beijing and Hebei province.

Its advantages in ultra low latency, ultra large bandwidth, and ultra high reliability, has become the primary artery of the smart city and the wider region, Tianjin Mobile said.

As of early September, China had built 993,000 5G base stations, covering more than 95 percent of counties and 35 percent of rural townships, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
