The cumulative net decrease of 5.34 million mobile subscribers for Jan to Jun 2014 was mainly due to the increasing market competition driven by the launch of LTE services and strengthened marketing promotion by its peer. In late Jun, China Telecom has been approved to commence the LTE FDD and TD-LTE hybrid network trial in 16 cities on the mainland and the Company has started to roll out 4G handset service from mid July 2014. The Company will continue to expand the width and depth of LTE network coverage in major cities to create superior network quality and accelerate e-Surfing 4G handset value chain development to assure superior 4G handset service experience to drive its mobile subscriber growth and investment return in future.
