The new year will see the increases of 30 million fixed-line subscribers and 48 million mobile phone subscribers, according to the ministry's projection of the domestic telecom market.


Latest figures released by the ministry say that China had reported 746 million telephone subscribers by the end of 2005.


The growing number of subscribers in the new year will undoubtedly bring about more business, and the ministry has projected that the telecom business income in 2006 is to hit 700 billion yuan (US$86 billion).


Meanwhile, the availability of fixed-line and mobile phones will climb to 29 per cent and 34 per cent respectively, it said.


During the 10th Five-Year Plan period between 2001 and 2005, China's telecom business income grew by an average 13.4 per cent annually, with 100 million new subscribers every year.
