There were 616.02 million subscribers of mobile communication services in China. And that figure is growing 1.26% a month and 19.46% a year.
This according to statistics published by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (this is known known as MIIT replacing what we used to know as MII.)
The number of subscribers at the end of August accounted for 45.6% of the country’s population.
Also at the end of August 2008 there were 354.07 million subscribers of fixed telecommunication networks in China, translating into a user density of 27%.
But, wait, there is more. In August 2008, mobile phone subscribers in China sent 57.31 billion text messages, averaging 3.02 messages per subscription a day.
Which means that China mobile users are NOT the most text message people of earth. On the other hand, 57.31 billion text messages if stretched end to end would show that a total communication revolution had taken place.
