Second-placed Unicom added 5.6 million 4G subscribers in May, pushing its current 2017 total to 28.8 million. At the end of May it had 133.4 million 4G users, constituting 54% of its 268 million subscribers.

Although third-placed overall, China Telecom leads China Unicom in terms of 4G subscribers, bringing its year-to-date 4G subscriber total up to 25.4 million after adding a further 4.7 million users in May. Its overall LTE subscribers number 147 million of a total subscriber base of 227 million.
