Beijing: Around 303 million Chinese people use their mobile phones to surf the internet.
This accounted for 66.2 percent of all internet users in the country, Qian Jinqun, vice secretary-general of the China Association of Communications Enterprises, was quoted as saying by Xinhua.
Around 43 million people “exclusively” use mobile phones to log on to the World Wide Web. This accounts for 10 percent of all internet users in China, he said.
