The following is based on translations from Chinese media:

China’s reports that in early March, the islands and reefs occupied by China in the Spratly Islands will  covered by China’s mobile phone and TV networks.

That is quite a big investment as those islands and reefs spread over quite a large area.

However, it is necessary if China is to use its artificial islands there for development of tourism, fishery, fish farming and exploitation of oil and gas.

Also, the troops stationed there will no longer feel lonely.
