Analyst: Paul Budde


The major carriers in China have been vigorous in their embrace of IP and have been busy building the infrastructure to support a wide range of IP services. It comes as no surprise that, consistent with its huge fixed and mobile subscriber bases, China already has the largest number of VoIP users in the world. At the same time, it is keen to protect this market from outside intrusion. In late 2005, the global VoIP service Skype came under attack by the Chinese operators, as Skype was perceived as a real threat to the fixed-line carriers. This report provides an overview of the IP networks that are being developed in China today.
