The number of Chinese phone users continued to grow rapidly in the first five months of the year, surpassing 1.1 billion by the end of May, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) figures showed Tuesday.
China added 40.8 million phone users during the January-May period, bringing the nationwide total to more than 1.1 billion in a country with a 1.3 billion population.

During the period, fixed-line telephone users dropped about 7.8 million to 306 million while mobile phone users jumped 48.5 million to 796 million, according to the MIIT.

Meanwhile, the number of Chinese broad-band Internet users jumped nearly 9.8 million to 113 million by the end of May.

The telecommunications industry recorded about 1.23 trillion yuan ($181 billion) of business income in the five-month period, up 21.6 percent year on year.

because it will tear china apart if individuals are going to be able to use wifi with smartphones!!111!^^

Except if a domestic champion asks for permission, then it will not only not endanger the harmonica society.
It will even receive advertisement from state run newspaper as CD, advertising the WiFi as an advantage of it over "they never had" smartphones from foreign competition that were crippled on behalf of this regulation.

Not that all the imported and reimported smartphones from the black market have yet really made a difference.

A question for the experts here, I have recently purchased a new smartphone, of course with wifi, will they try to confiscate it when I bring it to China ?
