The tender is believed to cover 55 cities in 30 provinces, and is the first stage in a 282 city rollout of the 3G technology.

Swedish giant Ericsson and its partners, New Postcom and Fiberhome, took a 25.6% share.

ZTE secured 21.5% of the tender, despite it being the weakest of the bidders in the WCDMA market.

Nokia Siemens network took 11.1%, whilst Alcatel-Lucent secured 10.2%.

The financial value of this portion of the rollout is not yet known.

The Chinese government plans to invest 280 billion yuan ($31 billion) in 3G technologies in 2017 and 2018.
