4 Nov 2005

An executive at China’s second largest mobile operator says the government still has no clear schedule for issuing 3G licences. Lu Yongren, executive director and VP at China Unicom, has said that 3G licensing guidelines are now expected to be issued early next year. He told Asia Pulse that he expects the first commercial 3G networks to be up and running in time for the 2008 Olympic Games which are being held in China.
