Analyst: Paul Budde


Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. China is poised to eventually become one of the world’s major Third generation (3G) mobile markets, so understandably the telecom industry is anxious to witness this country begin commercial 3G services. The local development of TD-SCDMA and its acceptance as one of three international 3G standards has been controversial. The rumour mill in early 2005 placed the number of 3G licences to be awarded anywhere between two to five licences. As of August 2005, 3G licences still had not been awarded. This report looks at the tentative steps toward the adoption of 3G mobile technology in China, as well as early talks surrounding 4G.
