WUZHEN, Zhejiang, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- The tucked-away river town of Wuzhen may not be an obvious site for the World Internet Conference, but the annual event shows that Internet connection is more important to modern life than location.
This year's conference, the fourth ever, featured a vision for the future of the east China town's century-old wooden houses: retrofitting with "smart home" systems that bring breakfast first thing in the morning and hail driverless cars to take residents to work after the morning meal.

Managing Director and World Bank Group Chief Administrative Officer, Shaolin Yang said there are six billion people without access to high-speed internet, and four billion of them don't have access to the internet at all.
"It is why here at this year's conference we must discuss how to bridge the digital divide Comprar Nike Air Max 98 Hombre ," said Gambardella, who said China is capable of being a leader in this endeavor.
China leads the world in access to fiber optic broadband networks and boasts the largest 4G network. Its internet penetration has topped 72.5 percent.

"In China, the government-led deployment of fiber-optic networks in rural areas is a best practice in the digital economy and should be introduced to other countries," he said. "The conference is a perfect platform for China to share its experience in bridging the digital divide."
In Mexico, the government is leading an internet reform that aims to reduce the costs for mobile communication and prices of information services.
"Our internet access rate has grown to 20 percent. In the meantime, 61 percent of mobile users have access to broadband, which was only 6 percent in 2011 Comprar Nike Air Max 98 Supreme ," said Miguel Angel Margain, Director General of the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property.
The unprecedented information revolution will be more meaningful when all people in the world can benefit from it, Yang added.
