China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom acquired 9.523 million new mobile users in October. That sounds a lot but, in fact, the figure is down 762,000 from September.
A sign of the times was that in almost all cases the number of new fixed-line telephone users fell.
CapitalVue reported that China Telecom’s new mobile users totaled 2.53 million, while its new broadband users numbered 840,000.
China Unicom’s new broadband users came to 650,000, while its 2G and 3G mobile users grew by 632,000 and 1.1 million, respectively.
China Mobile recorded 5.259 million new mobile users in October.
