China Mobile said its global system for mobile communications, or GSM, subscriber base increased by 2.88 million in July, beating June's 2.7 million increase.

Subscribers are preferred as a rule because they provide steady cash flow, but card users have one compensation: they create a rolling float, which can be huge with a card population of CM's size, on the unspent amount.
