Relevant data concerning the operation of China's telecommunication sector in November was released by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology December 28. The data shows that China's mobile phone penetration rate has reached 54.3 percent.

According to the data, the number of China's mobile phone users rose by 97.32 million to 739 million in the first 11 months of 2009, with the penetration rate standing at 54.3 percent. During the same period, the number of China's fixed-telephone users dropped by 22.07 million to 318 million, with the penetration rate standing at 24.4 percent. Judging from the data, reduction in the number of PHS mobile phone users is the main cause for the sharp decline in the number of fixed-telephone users. Since the beginning of this year, the number of PHS mobile phone users dropped by 20.06 million to 48.86 million.
