China Unicom said its capital spending in 2009 will soar to 110 billion Chinese yuan (16.1 billion US dollars) from 70.5 billion in 2008. Aiming to offer 3G services in 284 cities across China, the company plans to spend 38.7 billion yuan on its WCDMA network in 2009.
In 2008, China Unicom's revenue declined 1.2% to 148.91 billion yuan as the company's fixed-line operations struggled. Mobile revenue was boosted by growth in usage of value-added services, such as SMS, GPRS and ringtones, which accounted for 24.9% of total revenue from the mobile business, representing an increase of 3.3 percentage points over 2007. source: China Unicom presentation
