21 Aug 2007

The growth of the world’s largest cellco by subscribers, China Mobile, shows little sign of abating after it added a record 5.60 million customers in July, up from 5.53 million additions in June. The strong performance is on the back of a successful rural penetration strategy and efforts to capture customers of rival China Unicom. Overall at the end of July, China Mobile claimed 337.9 million subscribers, while China Unicom accounted for 153.1 million after adding ‘only’ 1.5 million customers in the month of July.
