    The document means to promote the construction of fiber optic broadband network and improvement of the information infrastructure capacity. Telecom companies shall carry out the construction of fiber optic broadband network in accordance with relevant national regulations and technical specifications, actively adopt a variety of models, take demands as the guide, follow the principle that optical fiber shall be as close to the user as possible, and speed up the deployment of optical broadband access network. Directly deploy the fiber optic broadband network in new areas. Speed up the reconstruction of network in the network constructed areas based on the principle of “Replacing copper with fiber optic”. In conditional commercial buildings and parks, directly implement the "fiber optic in each building, fiber optic in each office" policy. And in applicable residential areas, take the above-mentioned policy. Use the optical fiber broadband in precedence to speed up the construction of rural information infrastructure, and promote the realization of "fiber in each village". Strengthen the co-construction and sharing of the fiber optic broadband networks, and actively promote Triple Play. Synchronously enhance the transmission and switching capabilities of backbone network, promote their interoperability level, improve network service quality, and ensure network and information security.
    By 2011, there will be more than 80 million fiber optic broadband ports. The average access capacity of city users will be over 8 megabits per second, that of rural users will be up to 2 megabits per second or more, and that of commercial building customers will be more than 100 megabits per second. Within 3 years, the investment on the construction of fiber optic broadband network will exceed 1,500 billion yuan, and there will be more than 50 million new broadband users.
    This will greatly promote the broadband speeding-up process of telecom operators. The original business action of operators will be upgraded to be the state action to enhance the overall information level of the country. As for IPTV services, the Internet TV business has a great significance. High-definition video transmission over broadband will become the mainstream of high-definition video within 3 years. 80 million fiber-optic broadband access ports will be likely to be available for over 50% of broadband users.
