BEIJING - There are now more than 500 million 4G users in China thanks to government measures, a minister told a conference Tuesday.

China owns the world's largest 4G network with more than 2 million 4G base stations, Industry and Information Technology Minister Miao Wei told the First Global 5G Event in Beijing.

The country's mobile Internet users processed more than 4 million terabytes of data last year, 103 percent more than the previous year, according to Miao.

China has formed a 5G R&D team to research and test the technology with a view to commercialize it by 2020.
