China Tele­com starts new ser­vice in Canada

China Tele­com Amer­i­cas along with its branch China Tele­com Canada have of­fi­cially launched a mo­bile com­mu­ni­ca­tion ser­vice in Toronto.

The new ser­vice, CTEx­cel, be­comes the first Chi­nese telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion car­rier that pro­vides mo­bile com­mu­ni­ca­tion ser­vices with its own brand in Canada.

This is a mile­stone for China Tele­com since its first suc­cess in the US with CTEx­cel back in May 2015, said Ou Yan, vi­cepres­i­dent of China Tele­com Global.

“CTEx­cel is a mo­bile com­mu­ni­ca­tion ser­vice tai­lored for Chi­nese Cana­di­ans and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents. It in­her­ited the su­pe­ri­or­ity of a long-stand­ing back­bone net­work of China Tele­com,” Ou said at the launch on Nov 22.

Ac­cord­ing to Ou, with ex­ten­sive op­er­at­ing ex­pe­ri­ence over­seas, CTEx­cel will pro­vide ex­clu­sive cus­tomer ser­vice by of­fer­ing un­lim­ited data, un­lim­ited in­ter­na­tional call­ing and text mes­sag­ing ser­vices.

The first ever “one card dual num­ber” ser­vice has both Cana­dian and vir­tual Chi­nese phone num­bers at the same time. In that way, the client can re­ceive text mes­sages with ver­i­fi­ca­tion codes from China and let Chi­nese rel­a­tives and friends ex­empt in­ter­na­tional long dis­tance fees from con­tact­ing Canada at any time.

“We be­lieve that as one of the largest com­mu­ni­ca­tion car­ri­ers, China Tele­com is com­mit­ted to the de­vel­op­ment of global op­er­a­tions and ca­pa­bil­i­ties,” Ou added.

Markham City Coun­cil­lor Alan Ho, on be­half of Mayor Frank Scarpitti, said he was proud of the fi­nal­iza­tion of China Tele­com Canada in Markham, known as the Sil­i­con Val­ley of the Grand Toronto Area.

Ho said the city will sup­port the op­er­a­tor’s fu­ture de­vel­op­ment in Canada, and ex­pect more con­tri­bu­tions to Markham’s eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment from it.

“The launch of China Tele­com mo­bile ser­vices tight­ens the con­nec­tion be­tween China and Canada and se­cures high­qual­ity com­mu­ni­ca­tion,” said E De­feng, Chi­nese Com­mer­cial Coun­selor in Toronto. “It is ex­tremely cru­cial for the nev­erend­ing ex­pan­sion of Sino-Canada trade and cul­tural ex­change.”

Data show that there are nearly 2 mil­lion Chi­nese Cana­di­ans and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents cur­rently re­sid­ing in Canada. In or­der to serve them bet­ter, China Tele­com emerged onto the mar­ket by sign­ing busi­ness co­op­er­a­tion agree­ments with chan­nel agent CIK Tele­com, as well as dozens of uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges across Canada, and many other en­ter­prises.

“It would be a flow of new en­ergy in­stilled into the Cana­dian tele­com mar­ket,” said Sun Feng, pres­i­dent of China Tele­com Amer­i­cas mo­bile ser­vice. “It shall bring a bet­ter, more af­ford­able ser­vice to them with more ef­fi­ciency, more con­ve­nience and bet­ter qual­ity,”

Start­ing with the es­tab­lish­ment of its US of­fice in 2000, China Tele­com has branched out to 39 coun­tries around the world.
