* Include Wireless Local Access Lines

# The net increase in 2007 was significantly less than that of 2006 mainly due to intensified market competition, especially from mobile operators' free incoming call packages promotion. In addition, our strengthened control on sales initiatives for low-end subscribers to enhance profitable development further led to a net decrease in local access lines in services from August to December 2007.
