China Telecommunications Report Q2 2015

China Telecommunications Report Q2 2015

BMI View: The attractiveness of the Chinese telecommunications market rests on the size of the populationand the growing interest in data services. 3G growth drives the mobile market and 4G is taking off quickly.

The creation of a national infrastructure company will help rural growth for China Unicom and ChinaTelecom, putting China Mobile at a greater disadvantage. Increased price competition through theintroduction of mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) will weigh on average revenue per user (ARPU),in addition to rate reductions earlier in the year. These moves give the suggestion of an open market, butdevelopments are still closely controlled by the government and the Ministry of Industry and InformationTechnology (MIIT). However, a focus on development of internet access through the 'Broadband China'strategy roadmap, unveiled in 2013, will boost broadband coverage and speed in urban and rural regions.
