The next overhaul may lift the company even higher. 2008-04-23 16:09:08 China Mobile Soars on Sector Shakeup This is the Caijing Podcast for April 23rd, 2008 China Mobile Soars on Sector Shakeup China's telecommunications are approaching a major restructuring, with mergers and acquisitions the name of the game. On the to-do list is balancing the telecom sector, pushing the success of new standards, and helping China Mobile win internationally. Already the world's largest mobile service provider, none of its assets are expected to be involved in the restructuring. The state-controlled company is something of a badge of pride for its protectorate government agencies. Accordingly, insiders think the coming shakeup has the same goal as always: strengthening China Mobile. Now the company has a chance to become the world's most valuable telecom operator with the largest number of users. The company is already achieving earnings twice that of all of it's rivals combined. But can China Mobile continue growing at breakneck speed? Right now, rural markets are feeding the giants growth and providing smooth sailings domestically. Situated comfortably, the company can now focus on adopting emerging technologies, expanding overseas and growing market share. On April 1, the China Mobile CEO visited Pakistan to introduce it’s first international brand, named Zong. The brand will be released to other markets in time. The introduction was made possible when China Mobile purchased Pakistan's fifth largest telecom operator Paktel in 2007. The newly emerging mobile Internet sector is also an integral part of future plans. China Mobile's strategy is to slide into the net via instant messaging services.
