Abstract

“Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation” is one of the 17 goals made in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development formally adopted by the 193- Member United Nations General Assembly last September. More exactly, dramatically improving access to information and communication technology has been highlighted as the main target to achieve, and telecommunications industry plays a vital role in this area. However, with the continuous development of broadband infrastructure deployment, a huge number of Internet applications have played a dual role in grasping and stimulating the revenue of telecom service providers simultaneously. Because of the lack of a method system which can evaluate social benefits of telecommunication service industry, its fundamental role of promoting the development of the Internet economy, as well as its positive contributions such as increasing employment opportunities has not been widely accepted in Chinese society. This paper proposes a system for CSPs to conceptualization, measurement and quantification their social contribution under the environment of broadband internet and gives advice on how to perfect the present performance evaluation of national basic industries.
