China Telecom's mobile net adds slowed by competition

Monday 20 January 2014 | 23:12 CET | News
China Mobile ended December 2013 with 767.21 million mobile subscribers as it added 3.91 million new customers in the month. The total base includes 191.62 million 3G subscribers. China Unicom, meanwhile, reported 2.40 million net adds for December, bringing its customer base to 280.98 million, including 122.60 million 3G subscribers. China Unicom also added 45,000 fixed-line broadband customers to end the year with 64.65 million broadband customers, while the fixed-line local access base fell by 420,000 to 87.64 million. 

China Telecom's net adds slowed during December to 110,000. The company attributed the slowdown to China Mobile's launch of LTE services and increased marketing. China Telecom said it planned to strengthen its marketing to drive its subscriber growth upon the launch of its own LTE services in the first quarter of this year. The company ended December 2013 with 185.58 million mobile subscribers, including 103.11 million 3G subscribers. China Telecom's broadband base rose by 670,000 to 100.10 million while the fixed local access customer base fell by 710,000 to 155.80 million.
