China Telecom Will Launch Mobile Services In UKJanuary 11, 2012 | Print | Comments | Category: Telecom & Wireless
China Telecom is reportedly inking a deal with Britain's Everything Everywhere to launch mobile services in the country.
Everything Everywhere is a UK mobile operator jointly invested by France's Orange and Germany's T-Mobile.
According to the agreement, China Telecom (Europe), China Telecom's wholly-owned subsidiary for the EMEA region, will launch an MVNO on the network of Everything Everywhere. The partnership marks the first time that a Chinese telecom operator has launched MVNO services outside China.
The strategic partnership, secured via Everything Everywhere's mobile virtual network aggregator Transatel, takes the company's portfolio of MVNO partnerships to 24, and demonstrates Everything Everywhere's commitment to expanding opportunities for new MVNOs across the UK.
China Telecom (Europe) reportedly selected Everything Everywhere and Transatel based on the strength of Everything Everywhere's shared T-Mobile and Orange network, which reportedly offers the biggest 3G network and widest 3G coverage in the UK. In addition, Transatel's flexible and technologically advanced MVNO platform will allow China Telecom (Europe) to launch its service in the UK within months.
Launched in the first quarter of 2012, China Telecom (Europe) specifically targets Chinese residents and businesses in the UK, as well as visitors to the country such as students and tourists.
