China Unicom will increase its subsidies for 3G mobile phones, and put on sale low-price 3G models in order to carry out its scheduled plan for attracting more 3G users, reporters learned from China Unicom on March 28, 2010.

Substantial subsides became the main means by which China's three major mobile operators (namely China Mobile, China Telecom, and China Unicom) attracted 3G users in 2009. For example, China Mobile provided a total of 11.7 billion yuan in subsidies for 3G mobile phones, and China Telecom provided 10 billion yuan. However, China Unicom only provided subsidies in the amount of 350 million yuan, which is quite a low figure compared with its two rivals.
