Not sure why you would think China doesn't care about the poor air quality in it's major cities. It seems to me that they have improved air quality high on their agenda. The cost of cell towers versus land lines in developing countries may cheaper or it may be because of the vast capability advantages of cell towers. But the fact is that for all reasons involved, they skipped an obsolete technology. So these countires are fortunate to have not wasted resources on them. The cost of dangerous air quality in health terms is driving China to try to skip the obsolete ICE car as it gets ready to sell 200 Million cars to it's emerging middle class.
