China Mobile set up a 30 billion yuan

China’s largest telecommunications operator, China Mobile, said on Tuesday it will set up a 5G industry fund for 30 billion yuan and has already raised the first tranche of 7-10 billion yuan.

China Mobile Chairman Yang Jie made the announcement at a press conference in Shanghai, according to a transcript of his speech delivered by the company.

He did not set a time limit for the fund.

Yang also said China Mobile will invest 3 billion yuan in 5G content development, such as videos and ultra-high definition games.

In 2019, China Mobile plans to build more than 50,000 5G base stations in China and provide 5G services to more than 50 cities, he said.
