22 Feb 2007

The People’s Republic of China has postponed the award of 3G licences until the first quarter of 2008 at the earliest, according to Beijing-based business magazine Caijing, which cites an unnamed source. The report added that China Mobile will lead another round of tests of TD-SCDMA technology, beginning next month, which will run for a year. During this period, the magazine claims the Chinese government will not consider the award of 3G licences.
