China has the highest consumption of optical fibers in the world. Reports say that around 50% of the world’s optical fiber is consumed in China. Then naturally there will be many fiber optic cable makers in China. How many are there? Can anybody name those cable makers.
If my Chinese friends can list them here, it would be helpful and useful to all, especially for those looking for cables from China.
There are many fiber optic cable manufacturers in China, famous or not famous, you can check the B2B marketplace en.OFweek, collecting lots of cable suppliers from mainland China. http://en.ofweek.com/Optical-Fiber-Cables-1016060401
