China Telecom Europe launches MVNO in France

Thursday 17 October 2013 | 09:58 CET | News
China Telecom Europe has announced a "pays-as-you-go" MVNO service over the Orange network in France to serve Chinese residents and visitors. The CTExcelbiz service promises to charge very low roaming tariffs for holidaymakers and business travellers in Europe as well as a local Chinese number for friends and family to call. The move comes 18 months after the Chinese company launched a MVNO of the same name in the UK over the EE network.
