China Mobile’s 3G coverage

China Mobile uses the nation’s home-grown 3G mobile standard, TD-SCDMA, in its network and is the only company in the world rolling it out in a big way.

The TD-SCDMA network is progressing smoothly. By the end of this year, China Mobile will roll out 88,000 TD-SCDMA base stations in 238 cities, said Wang Jianzhou, chairman and CEO of China Mobile. The number of base stations will nearly double to 160,000 by 2011.

He expects 3 million subscribers for TD-SCDMA by the end of this year.

The subscriber projection means China Mobile will have to work hard to meet a government target for it to reach between 50 million and 80 million 3G subscribers by the end of 2010.

Wang blamed high prices for TD-SCDMA handsets for the lack of uptake in the national 3G standard.

The quality of TD-SCDMA technology has improved and there are a range of handsets, high-end, mid-end and soon there will be some low-end handsets priced at around 1000 Chinese yuan (US$147), he said.
