China Telecom nets Alcatel for broadband network expansion

May. 31, 2012 (China Knowledge) - China Telecom<0728><CHA>, the nation's largest fixed-line operator has inked a EUR 100 million worth of contract with Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell, the Chinese unit of Paris-headquartered Alcatel-Lucent, to expand China's broadband access network.

Pursuant to the contract, Alcatel will provide Chinese users with new services, including IPTV, video-on-demand and voice-over-IP services.

The fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks will also be deployed across China's 31 provinces to offer high-speed internet services, said a person familiar with the matter.

China Telecom's Science & Technology Committee director Wei Leping said, the cooperation with Alcatel will provide users with premium broadband experience.

Yesterday, China Telecom announced plans to buy the code division multiple access (CDMA) mobile network from its parent company this year, to avoid paying high leasing costs. But China Telecom did not disclose the acquisition price.
