A large number of policy security measures have been introduced in land expropriation, location and compensation, which create a good policy atmosphere for the pilot implementation.
- Broadband construction helps to get rid of poverty. The implementation of telecommunication universal service has greatly promoted the process of optical fiber access in China's rural network, and laid a solid foundation for the development of the rural economy and society and the hard work of helping the poor. By the end of November 2016, the proportion of China's rural network optical fiber access is 82.2% (FTTH port ratio), 19 percentage points higher than the end of 2015, the broadband coverage rate of poor villages is over 80%, and more than 61 million rural fiber broadband users, up 90% from the end of 2015, and the national administrative village after the completion of the two batch of pilot construction in 2017 is expected to be completed. The total optical fiber proportion will exceed 90%.
