China Mobile Ltd. (ADR) (NYSE:CHL) CM Chief warns of Unlimited Data
- Unlimited data plans may increase revenue in the short run, but are ultimately unsustainable for the industry, China Mobile chief executive Li Yue said on Wednesday.
- Li told reporters after the company’s annual general meeting that unlimited data plans without a cap on how much data can be used may be profitable for operators today, but will ultimately cause losses for the industry in the future.
- His comments came after China Telecom and smartphone maker Xiaomi announced an unlimited data package for Xiaomi users
- China Mobile has pushed out data plans, but data speeds are throttled once users use over 12 or 20 gigabytes of data per month depending on their subscription plans.
