China Mobile adds record number of subscribers

20 Feb 2008

The world’s largest cellco by subscribers, China Mobile, has revealed it signed up a record number of users for a single month in January. The cellco added more than seven million users during the month, by far outstripping rival Unicom’s one million new additions. China Mobile’s total customer base now stands at more than 368 million. Shares, however, slid 2.3% as some investors cashed their gains before the government’s long-rumoured reshuffle of the country’s telecoms market.
