Chinese authorities are expanding access to the Internet in the country’s new paper routes.
Reuters reports that the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology (MOCIT) will begin installing high-speed Internet connections at more than a dozen public libraries across the country.
They will offer free access to internet users to help with the nation’s growing literacy and health needs.
The new paper route routes will be able to deliver a digital version of the paper documents of the past, such as maps, maps and diagrams, as well as new digital content, such like e-books.
The routes will also be able carry digital files of the current day’s newspapers and magazines, and digital files on which users can create new digital works.MOCAT plans to use the new paper paths to help connect students with textbooks.
In an interview with Reuters, a MOCIT official said the new routes would allow Chinese people to read books in English while still reading traditional Chinese texts, and help connect the country to the world through the Internet.
The official said a digital model of the new digital routes was also being developed, and would be used to link Chinese-language newspapers to online resources, such a news site.
