China Unicom Picks Up Another 3.2 Million 3G Users in November


In news that should surprise precisely no one, China’s 3G market continues to grow like hotcakes. Or, rather, grow like a weed. The market is growing like a weed and 3G plans are selling like hotcakes. Whatever, people, you get the point: 3G in China is growing fast.

The company also picked up 78,000 new 2G clients, bringing that total up to 162 million.
