Mobile internet access? Yeah, that's pretty popular in China, but according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, household access is on the rise, too. The country says it will be expanding FTTH connections by 35 million households in 2013, putting 4M broadband connections (or faster) in over 70 percent of Chinese households. The announcement is part of China's 2013 broadband initiative, which aims to expand connectivity across the nation, including rural areas and schools. By the end of the year, China can expect to have 180,000 new 3G base stations and 1.3 million new WiFi hotspots.
