The cumulative net decrease of 5.02 million mobile subscribers for Jan to Aug 2014 was mainly due to the increasing market competition driven by the launch of LTE services and strengthened marketing promotion by its peer. With the approval of commencing the LTE FDD and TD-LTE hybrid network trial in selected cities on the mainland, China Telecom started to roll out 4G handset service in 16 cities in late Jul and further expanded to 24 more cities in early Sep. 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.
