China Telecom was our first choice as a partner, because of their extensive infrastructure backbone and network throughout China, connecting to Europe and the rest of the world. The team from China Telecom (Europe) (CTE) is very easy to work with. We saw this from the beginning with our interactions with CTE.

Roberto Vitali

European Marketing & Sales ManagerBenelli Motorcycle

I had the great opportunity to work together with China Telecom (Europe) in developing a new and exciting project to let our motorcycles communicate with us. We are talking about Internet of Things (IoT) and Benelli is one of the first motorcycle brands to work on it and introduce it for two wheels. To do this we wanted to choose the best partners and it was obvious that one of these is China Telecom (Europe).
