This article reports on the plan of the Chinese government to grant third-generation licenses to operators after the Time Division-Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (TD-SCDMA) trial ends in February 2007. The TD-SCDMA trial was launched in September 2006 in Beijing and a few other places with 20,000 government officials, telecommunication carrier staff and telecommunication equipment company executives. Information on the possible obstacles to third-generation launch is provided.
