Accelerated Investment In Fttx And Wi-Fi As Mobile Data Soars China outperformed all other major economies in 2011 although GDP growth slowed to 9%. The government vowed, in the 12th Five-Year Plan released in March 2011, to continue reforming the economy and emphasised the need to increase domestic consumption in order to make the economy less dependent on exports for GDP growth.

According to the International Monetary Fund, China's share of worldwide GDP is to grow from 1.7% in 1991 to 11% in 2014. This highlights the massive change underway in China. Telecommunications is an important vehicle to drive through this radical shift in economic prosperity and culture.

China's entire telecommunications market generated around US$160 billion in 2011. It is the second largest telecoms services market in Asia Pacific after Japan. The market is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 8.8% between 2009 and 2014, reaching US$187 billion by 2014, surpassing Japan as the largest telecommunications market in Asia.

Market Highlights - China had close to 1,300 million phone users by mid-2012, including mobile phones, fixed-line phones and PHS handsets. Mobile subscribers comprised over 80% of the total.

- Non-voice revenue comprised over 40% of total industry revenue and value added services comprised over 25% of total industry revenue.

- Internet access conditions improved in rural areas as more provinces and municipalities moved into the first echelon of internet development.
