Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. China has been able to build a substantial national telecommunications infrastructure, with fibre optic cables criss-crossing the nation, though there is still much need for expansion and improvement. It is forecast that China will install more access lines than any other country over the years leading up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. China Netcom plans to use around 50% of the proceeds from its November 2004 IPO toward infrastructure. The total investment in fixed assets by all Chinese telcos is expected to reach 210 billion yuan (US$25.4 billion) in 2005, equalling that in 2004, though the funds will be applied differently. This report looks at China’s national telecom infrastructure.
