China is home to the world's largest mobile market, as well as the biggest market for mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs). The Economist Intelligence Unit estimates that there were around 1.4bn mobile subscribers in 2017, and this is forecast to reach 1.5bn by 2022, rising at an annual average rate of 1.3%.

Although fixed-line penetration is highly variable across cities in China, usage of fixed-line services is part of a long-term downward trend. However, take-up of voice over internet protocol (VoIP) calls, which allow users to make phone calls over the internet, will rise. This will boost fixed-line subscriptions, which are expected to increase at an annual average rate of 10.2% over the forecast period (2018-22).

China's cyber-security law, which came into effect in June 2017 in response to several cyber-attacks, has come under significant criticism. It has been alleged that the law could harm online freedom, make it more difficult for foreign companies to operate in China and prove potentially damaging to trade.
