Huawei Technologies Co. and China Mobile Ltd. have built a 3,000 kilometer (1,860-mile) Internet network linking Beijing to the south.

In partnership with China's Tsinghua University and research provider Cernet.com Corp., the network is being touted as the world’s first to achieve a “stable and reliable” bandwidth of 1.2 terabits per second, several times faster than typical speeds around the world.

Trials began July 31 and it since has passed various tests verifying that milestone, the university said in a statement.

The network “is operated based on China’s domestically-owned key technologies,” the official Xinhua News Agency said in a report carried on Tsinghua’s website.
