XI'AN: Xi'an, capital of northwest China's Shaanxi Province, will set up 25,000 5G base stations by 2022 to comprehensively promote the integrated and innovative application of 5G in the city.

Xi'an will build 9,000 new 5G base stations, totaling 13,000, this year, achieving high-quality coverage of the 5G network in its core urban areas and key areas including industrial parks, transportation lines and tourist attractions, said a guideline unveiled by the city's government.
