China to have 900 million cellular phone users this year
2011/3/7 16:03:37   Hits:

China becomes the first country to have 900 million cellular phone users, thanks to the country's rapid economic growth and the government's steadfast efforts to beef up the communications industry, a key sector propping up China.

Government statistics show that by the end of March, the country's mobile phone users had hit 889 million, a net rise of 30 million in the first three months this year. Market analysts say the total number of cellular phone users will surpass 900 million sometime in May, or no later than June.

The U.S. has 302 million mobile phone users, while India, another rapidly growing Asian economy, had 790 million mobile phone uses now, sources say.

China's 3-G networks, which launched in 2009, added 13.5 million new subscribers over the first three months of 2011. This puts China on track to surpass its 2010 3-G network growth rate, which added 34.7 million users over the course of that year.

China's smart-phone sales have helped fuel the increase in 3-G subscribers in the country. While only 21 million smart-phones were sold in 2009, that number tripled to 62 million in 2010. Smart-phone sales in China are expected to reach 95 million for 2011.

At the end of 2010, China had 303 million users who used mobile phones to go online, an increase from 230 million from the year before, according to the China Internet Network Information Center.
