China largest single mobile phone market in the world
Posted on 21-Aug-2003 20:42 | Filed under: News

Official Chinese agency reported that nearly five million new users in July signed up for mobile services, taking its total to 239.45 million people, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

The world's largest mobile market by users has added another 33.45 million users in the first seven months of 2003, it said late on Tuesday, citing statistics from the Ministry of Information Industry.

It had 234.5 million mobile users by the end of June, the ministry had said.

Analysts said growth in mobile subscribers was slowing relative to a year ago, when between five and six million new users were being added every month.

The decline was expected, reflecting a slight slowdown in the market served by operators China Mobile and China Unicom, they said.
