China Unicom transforming with focus on data

Monday 19 November 2012 | 02:19 CET | News
China Unicom is going through a critical transformation as the operator is shifting its focus to its data business. Weak domestic demand is putting pressure on traditional mobile services such as voice and SMS, company chairman Chang Xiaobing told the China Daily in an interview. However, the data business, supported by the growing popularity of smartphones, is growing quickly. "China Unicom has come to a point where it has to transform itself," Chang said. "We may face difficulties in the transition, but China Unicom has the confidence and the capability to overcome those."
