Because China: When China builds your country’s internet [TRAILER]


I’m in a back road in rural Zambia. As you can see there’s basically nothing around here. Even so my phone has pretty good internet service here. Today, even the most remote parts of Zambia have gone digital. To see that firsthand, we traveled a thousand kilometers from the capital, Lusaka, in a car on a plane on another plane and a boat, across a lake at through a swamp to an isolated island, and it’s as connected to the
digital world as any other part of Africa. — Before you needed to physically
send messages to people you know by way, the boat or by the canoe. This is Kunda Mwila. He grew up on this island, and has worked in the telecoms industry
for decades. — But now with the 3G we are able to just make a call on your mobile. Cell service, Wi-Fi, cable TV, satellite dishes all of this has something in
common; China. Private Chinese companies build
the infrastructure funded with loans from the Chinese government. Around the world Chinese-built networks are connecting places to the digital economy for the first time. But China is also giving governments unprecedented power to control the information on those networks. For young democracies like Zambia, that can be a blessing or a curse. We’re traveling around the world to find
out how China is changing basically everything. This week the internet.

  1. So some company build perfect internet in countries people used to only consider as poor and sad, and making those countries a good place….. Of course that's a bad thing.

  2. But you know, this is America, the moment you hear the magic word C H I N A, shut your brain and call it evil.

  3. The last time China built a Steel Bridge in America it was $10 million over budget and immediately collapsed. Because China.

  4. Why is everyone here so angry at China? I get not agreeing with some things the Gov does but gosh, I'm worried for some of you and your anger lol! Cant wait to watch more of this series, Quartz. It's an interesting topic.

  5. Now the PRC knows the porn habits of Zambians and to no one's surprise… "Where da white wimmenz at?" and "Big booty bitches".

  6. Now you're hopelessly in debt to China, Zambia… You would think the whole One Belt One Road initiative would have left a bad taste in the mouths of Africans, I guess not. China is enslaving all of Africa and people are dumb enough to cheer it on. Wake up Africa before it's too late!

  7. The West: Did nothing for Africa for last 200 years
    Quartz: ….
    China: Building Internet that connect people
    Quartz: China is threading the democracy!!!!

  8. I can't think of anything to comment so I'm just going to post a Blueberry pancake recipe.

    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 1/4 teaspoons white sugar
    1 egg
    1 cup milk
    1/2 tablespoon butter, melted
    1/2 cup frozen blueberries, thawed

    1. In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. In a small bowl, beat together egg and milk. Stir milk and egg into flour mixture. Mix in the blueberries.

    2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with a covering of your choice..jam (jello as our American cousins call it)thick double cream, ice cream, chocolate, raspberry, strawberry sauce or syrup. The choice is yours. 😀🤤

  12. I am not paying for Q membership. I’ll look up another person video on this matter. You trippin tripping

  13. The Quartz..what a piece of degenerate racist shits refering to the West as being former colonial masters. This is one of many reasons the West is falling and failing. .ARROGANCE. ., someone will be your Masters soon let's see if the quartz will refer to you as Colonial sub subservience

  14. China is the country that is making useful consumer goods and building infrastructure around the world. The US doesn't do any of these. It can only resort to smear China. But who actually enslaved millions of Africans? Is it the West or is it Asian countries that colonised Africa? The US smear against China before Africa is like a serial rapist telling his victim not to go out with other men because of what might happen to them.
