Chris Lane adds, “we hope China mobile the move will boost consumer migrating to 4 g era”.

, analysts say, despite the intensified competition reduces the cost of mobile services, pricing in the long term data fell, but increasingly large data consumption will promote the growth of China’s telecommunications sector, and thus similar topic in the history of American telecom profit expansion.
