* for the relevant reporting period

The business of the Group continued to develop satisfactorily in the first reporting quarter of 2002, with a sustained rapid growth in the number of subscribers. As at 20 Mar 2002, the Group had 74.59 million subscribers, representing a net increase of 4.95 million subscribers in less than 3 months from the subscriber base as at 31 December 2001. As the penetration rate of mobile telecommunications services in China rises, the number of low usage subscribers also continues to increase.

Although the Group's MOU and ARPU for the first reporting quarter of this year continued to decline (as shown in the above table), the rate of such decline has been noticeably alleviated. ARPU for the first reporting quarter of 2002 was RMB125, representing a decrease of only RMB2 from that for the fourth reporting quarter of 2001 of RMB127. Average revenue per minute was RMB0.594, which is about the same as that for the fourth reporting quarter of 2001, whereas the average daily usage volume and average daily revenue continued to grow favorably.
