China - Telecommunications Infrastructure - International and Satellite Networks


Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. China is turning a great deal of attention toward international and satellite solutions for its expanding telecommunications infrastructure. China’s satellite communications market is expected to be worth US$2.8 billion by 2005. Though the intended 2005 launch of SinoSat-2 was delayed until 2006, AsiaSat-6 launched in April 2005. This report focuses on international and satellite infrastructures that service the Chinese telecommunications market, including major international cable projects, as there are concerns that China will use up all its international bandwidth by 2007. Satellite operators and service providers will be discussed, as well.
