China - Major Telecom Operators - Overview and Statistics

Synopsis

In 2008, government’s reforms created three integrated operators, China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom, reducing the number of main operators from six to three. The newly converged operators were to boost the China telecommunications market, particularly with the foreseen growth after 3G licences were finally awarded later in 2008. This report provides an overview of the three major operators in China’s telecommunications market, including financial and operational statistics, capital expenditure breakdown.
