Delhi, India (PressExposure) January 15, 2009 -- With a wave of restructuring in May 2008, the Chinese telecom industry is flooded with the news of Mergers & Acquisitions (M&As) among the existing telecom players. As part of the move, China Telecom has acquired the CDMA line of China Unicom, and China Unicom has been merged with China Netcom. Another incumbent operator, China Mobile, has acquired China Railcom.
"The idea behind this revamp is to allow each operator offer full telecom services, which otherwise had been dominated by broadly four players, two in fixed-line and two in Mobile. Now the three players will compete in the market with equal service base", says a telecom analyst at RNCOS.
The three operators, China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom, have been planning to inject billions of dollars in expansion of their networks in the world's biggest telecom market, says our new research "Restructuring and 3G - New Dimensions for China Telecom Sector". Much of the investment will be required for convergence and upgradation of existing network, making it possible to offer fixed-line and mobile telephony services via existing infrastructure.
Recently, China Unicom has revealed that it would require some US$14.6 Billion over the next two years to fund the deployment of wireless infrastructure. Also, China Telecom is aggressively implementing its strategies to develop the newly acquired CDMA infrastructure. Further, 3G remains the focal of domestic telecom industry. Various industry players have already injected huge amounts in 3G infrastructure developments, and many more projects are ready to be launched.
