Digital Snapshot

One of China’s big three mobile telcos, China Telecom has more than 135 million subscribers, including 43 million 3G customers, in the country’s fast-growing smartphone market.

Key Move

China Telecom may have added the iPhone early in 2012, but it had already amassed 43 million registered users for its own “e-Surfing apps store” by 2011 and more than doubled subscribers to its ‘e-Surfing Video.” Consumers gobbled an average 106Mb per month in mobile data.

Our Methodology

Within RMB 20,473,000,000 in applications revenue, we are counting RMB 4,172,000,000 in mobile apps revenue. And we are also including half of the RMB 25,529,000,000 stated in China Telecom’s other relevant business line, value-added services.
