China Mobile has agreed to lease the TD-SCDMA network being built by its parent, China Mobile Communications (CMCC), and has announced that it will pay a maximum of RMB1 billion (USD146 million) during 2009. The company has already invested some USD2 billion building its trial network. The rental figure has been agreed on by taking estimates of traffic and usage on the network by China Mobile subscribers. China’s CCID Consulting issued a report earlier this year which predicted that the country would have 51 million TD-CDMA subscribers by 2011.

CMCC is currently expanding its TD-SCDMA 3G trials to 28 additional cities. The operator is currently trialling the network in eight metropolitan areas, namely Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Shenyang, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Xiamen and Qinhuangdao.
