The company is positioning itself to be a premier provider of managed international data services for foreign corporations operating in China, and world class roaming data services for international and Chinese travelers.
China has already surpassed the U.S. as the largest market in the world for both Internet users and wireless phone subscribers. In 2008, China's Internet users increased 41.9% to 298 million, with an Internet penetration rate of 22.6%, only slightly higher than the world average of 21.9%. In spite of this explosive rise in popularity, China's bandwidth speeds often still lag behind other countries providing ample opportunity for company growth.
Last month, China Wi-MAX signed a strategic letter of intent (LOI) with Unilava Corp. for joint venture development and/or sharing of resources.
