Bid to improve XLT quality

20 Oct 2005

China Telecom and its fixed line competitor China Netcom are to work together to develop a solution to improve indoor coverage of their PAS limited mobility networks. The firms plan to introduce a new handset which will work more like a cordless fixed line phone, giving improved call quality in indoor areas while still providing limited mobility outside. The pair market their hybrid fixed-mobile services under the name XiaoLingTong (Little Smart).
