Urbanization is an important trend in the process of China's modernization. The rapidly advancing adoption of information and communications technology (ICT) in China is enabling this process and may also help in addressing the challenges stemming from the rapid changes, including those related to increasing traffic and environmental issues. This paper is intended to discuss a possible approach for enabling the vision of Digital City to become a reality by providing ubiquitous Internet access for China's metropolitan areas. In particular, the paper proposes a blueprint for integrated wireless broadband information services (IWBIS) and identifies a number of outstanding research issues to the implementation of IWBIS.
