History of China Telecommunications


The whole span of the country in the People's Republic of China (PRC) is linked by a diversified communications system – from Internet, telephone, telegraph, radio to television. While the telecommunications network that are in use are not as advanced as those in modern Western countries, the system includes some of the most sophisticated technology in the world. With this in place, China could boast of a strong foundation for the further development of a modern telecommunications network.


When the People's Republic was established in 1949, the vast country’s telecommunications systems and facilities were outdated and rudimentary, with many damaged or destroyed during the war years. Those that remained in use were largely concentrated on the eastern coastal cities, the Nanjing-Shanghai region, and a few interior cities. Existing facilities were repaired, and, with Soviet’ aid, considerable progress was made toward establishing a long-distance telephone wire network which connected Beijing with provincial capitals, in the 1950s.

In the same decade, communications in China was rapidly put in place. For instance, by 1952 the principal telecommunications network which was mainly in Beijing was made to link with all large cities across China. The effort was brisk to repair, renovate and expand the system. It was so fast that in 1956, telecommunications networks expanded into areas that were never reached before. The communications system also doubled its role as telegraphic and telephone service providers. Meanwhile Teletype and television services were also eventually introduced.
