China’s largest fixed-line phone company is launching its first overseas wireless service in the U.K. with plans to venture further into Europe. China Telecom Europe will introduce a service that caters to the half a million Chinese citizens living in the UK with the intention of expanding into Germany and France depending on their success in the UK. The Olympic Games in London this Sumer will also see an influx of international tourists which may, depending on their marketing strategy for launch, help to bolster any initial success in Western Europe. The service will operate across the Everything Everywhere network and China Telecom has signed a strategic agreement with France Telecom in October to provide services for business customers across each other‚Äôs networks.
