The value of China's information consumption reached about 5 trillion yuan (about 730.9 billion U.S. dollars) in 2018, an increase of 11 percent, according to a report released Tuesday by the Internet Society of China.

Consumption for information services surpassed that for information products for the first time in 2018, signifying a transformation in the structure of the information consumption market, the report said.

It said information consumption was now a major booster for the Chinese economy as new business modes, technologies and industries were emerging to cater to an expanding consumer class with ever-growing consumption power.

Being inseparable from people's lives, information consumption is playing an increasingly important role in China's economic transition from a phase of rapid growth to a stage of high-quality development, it said.

According to the report, as of September 2018, the number of wired broadband subscribers in China is 380 million, while the number of mobile broadband users stood at around 1.29 billion.
