A total of 1683 cities and towns and 2589 public institutions, including police stations, schools and community hospitals, are involved. This project will also provide broadband services to other public institutions, private organizations and individual residents, benefiting more than one million people.
In the future, YOFC will adhere to the internationalization and diversification policies, focus on the goal of high-quality development, and promote the “Belt and Road” initiative towards high-quality development through our sustainability and leading role in the industry, so as to make greater contributions to the economic globalization.
