China’s three mobile operators will boost revenues with planned 4G mobile network roll-outs, South China Morning Post reported, citing a report from technology research firm IHS. The report says China Mobile (CHL.NYSE, 0941.HKG), China Unicom (CHU.NYSE, 0762.HKG) and China Telecom (CHA.NYSE, 0728.HKG) will deploy a total of 1.05 million 4G base transceiver stations by 2015, which will increase the operators’ lucrative data traffic in the world’s biggest smartphone market. The 4G expansion will likely help the industry achieve another target set by Beijing’s 12th five-year plan: More than US$241.9 billion in revenue by 2015. The three operators had combined revenue of US$172.9 billion last year.
