In the cable fixed network broadband market in recent years, China Mobile has swept China Unicom and China Mobile with its free stick, but even if there is a free lunch, it will not last long. According to the news, China Mobile has started to charge broadband installation and debugging fees since October 2019. Each new user has about 100 yuan, and the package below 58 yuan is no longer free of charge. The change of this policy is also directly reflected in the market data.
In fact, in October last year, the month when China Mobile Broadband began to charge, the number of users increased by only 19.05 million, which is barely passable. In November, the number of users increased by only 6.94 million, the lowest since January 2017, and decreased directly in December.
At present, the number of well-documented mobile broadband users in China dates back to the end of December 2015, when the number was 55.029 million, or more than tripled in four years.
by comparison,At present, China Unicom has only 83.478 million broadband users, a net decrease of 2.598 million last year, while China Telecom is not so good. Although there are still 153 million broadband users, the growth is weak. Last year, only 7.34 million people were added, and 620000 people were reduced in December.
