China Telecom to focus on broadband

19 Dec 2005

China Telecom, the largest fixed line service provider in China, has announced plans to shift its business focus onto broadband value added services (VAS). The telco is looking to capitalise on the broadband VAS market, particularly for internet browsing, voice services, ringtone downloads and IP-TV. The company says that while it has more than 20 million broadband users, revenues from VAS only account for 23% of its total turnover, a figure it hopes to increase to 35% before 2007.
