China Mobile Network Nearly Covers Chinese Population

China Mobile, the world's largest mobile phone service provider, has nearly covered China's vast population with its mobile phone network, its top executive said Tuesday, noting that the network now covers 97% of China's population.

"Even remote areas not connected to the power grid nor transportation networks are covered," said Wang Jianzhou, China Mobile's chairman and CEO, at the ITU Telecom Asia 2008 exhibition in Bangkok.

China Mobile's mobile phone subscriptions are growing at a rate of about 7 million per month, in large part due to uptake in rural areas, said Wang.
