1. USD figures calculated at an exchange rate of USD = RMB 6.17
2. Includes PHS subscribers, which are counted as fixed-line subs.
3. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) updates teledensity figures at irregular intervals. Please check past months to determine the most recent update.
4. The MIIT's Internet subscriber figures are based on total number of registered users. As many accounts are shared by multiple users, figures for total number of users, both registered and unregistered, are considerably higher than those shown here.
