GUANGZHOU - China Mobile Ltd, the telecom carrier with the most subscribers in the world, said it will offer a wireless service platform in about 200 Chinese cities.

The company said it is confident it will have 10 million users of that "Wireless City" by the end of the year.

The plan, which will let citizens access various types of public information on mobile phones, has been promoted by China Mobile since last year. Li Yue, chief executive officer of China Mobile, said building the Wireless City is the most important task the company has during China's 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-2015).

The project is meant to benefit phone users in several ways. For instance, in Xiamen, a coastal city in eastern China, people will be able to use it to look up information about public transport, noise pollution from construction sites and health records.

To build the Wireless City, China Mobile has signed agreements with 30 provinces and autonomous regions. Through its wireless platform, the company offers access to more than 10,000 applications.

"Networks, platforms and applications are the elements that will determine the success of the 'Wireless City' plan," Li said at the China Mobile Global Developers Conference in Guangzhou on Wednesday.

"We will implement our 'four network coordinated development' strategy in wireless cities," Li said. He explained that a single network will not be able to meet China's future demand for transferring data.
