The 5G hospital will be jointly set up by Xiamen Eye Center of Xiamen University, Xiamen branch of China Telecom and the tech giant Huawei, according to a cooperation agreement signed by the three sides Sunday.

"Not only can the 5G network improve the quality of the network, it also provides more possibilities for medical services," said Zhang Guangbin, vice president of the eye center.

In the future, online livestreaming eye surgeries, remote consultation of oculists and remote guidance of eye surgeries are key areas to apply the technology, Zhang said.

Cities across China are adopting the 5G network to meet the public demand in sectors such as transportation, entertainment and health care. Enditem
