China - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

China possesses the largest broadband subscriber base in the world, with the majority of users accessing the Internet through mobile devices. Catering to this demand are China's three telcos: China Telecom, China Unicom and China Mobile. Broadband makes up the majority of fixed Internet connections given dial-up comprises less than 2% of total fixed Internet connections.

Despite high broadband penetration China possesses one of the slowest broadband speeds globally although this should change following network architecture improvements such as the October 2015 completion of a two year project to increase the number of nationwide Internet traffic hubs from three to ten.

Unlike the US market, where cable internet access plays a prominent role in developing the fixed broadband market, DSL was the initial driving force behind fixed broadband growth in China, followed later by EPON fibre and now GPON fibre.

Key developments:

The Majority of China's online audiences accesses the Internet via mobile
China's broadband ranking will improve as network deployments continue
Broadband has become the key revenue generator for China's three telcos
China Telecom has successfully increased broadband ARPU
Fibre coverage has grown aggressively to meet government policy targets
Fibre has overtaken DSL to become the key fixed broadband technology platform
State-owned Nepal Telecom (NT) says it had completed the deployment of a fibre link to the Chinese border.

Companies covered in this report include:

China Mobile; China Telecom; China Unicom.
