Shanghai Securities News, 4/17/08
China Mobile (NYSE: CHL; 0941.HK) is carrying out examination and handover of the first stage of TD-SCDMA construction. However, according to one manufacturer this has been delayed by a lack of progress in Beijing. An industry insider commented that it is hard to say when the network in Beijing will be ready for examination, with some base stations still not in place.
A senior source in a city-level China Mobile branch said that to date no ranking of cities or manufacturers based on TD-SCDMA network performance and progress has been made.
