Lower Internet charges will help increase the number of 4G subscribers in the country, experts said.

China is aiming to add 200 million 4G users this year as the network coverage extends to the less-developed inland areas, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

Milly Xiang, an analyst with research firm International Data Corp in Beijing, said: "The lower Internet charges will prompt more 3G users to try out the 4G services." In addition, the introduction of smartphones with 4G capability by the second half of the year will boost subscriber numbers, she said.
