The Chinese government recently revealed plans to improve the nation's broadband internet service, allowing users from all over the country to access information and connectivity faster and more efficiently. Professionals with network computing training will be in high demand as the project takes off.The broadband network plan aims to create a blueprint for unifying the national cyber information technology platform through state-owned telecommunication lines. Major cities will act as the hubs for major access to high-speed broadband connectivity, but smaller cities will also receive the technology. Certain rural regions, however, in the western and central parts of China, will not have network connectivity under the current plan, Caixin Online reported.In addition, the largest cable company in Germany is planning to offer faster downloadable speeds to increase accelerated internet connectivity to enterprises, organizations and individual users across the country.ARS Technica reported the cable provider and its competitors were originally offering speeds of 300Mbps of connectivity to the broadband network. Now, the provider is enabling users to access the internet and download information at speeds of 4.7Gbps. The new speed was originally tested in the city of Schwerin to see if the network upgrades would be viable and sustainable on a national level. While the faster speeds are available to various locations with FiOS deployment, the cable provider anticipates the speeds will be adopted across the country in a few years when modern infrastructure is implemented in remote communities.
