APRIL 04, 2017–China Telecom and UROS Uni-fi Roaming Solutions today announced a partnership to provide international travelers with high-speed mobile internet in both China and Hong Kong at a fixed and affordable daily rate instead of costly roaming service.

Deng Xiao Feng, CEO of China Telecom Global, said: “We are excited to support UROS for its connectivity requirements across HK and mainland China. With its CTExcel brand, CT is committed to providing high quality mobile service across the regions for both consumers and enterprises without compromising quality and reliability.
“As part of its focus on innovation, China Telecom together with UROS will support eSIM technology, which can enable advanced eSIM devices to address the increasing demand in the Internet of Things (IoT) market.”
Jyrki Hallikainen, UROS chairman of the Board, said: “UROS is delighted to announce this partnership with China Telecom. We believe that combining the standardized eSIM technology together with our own IoT platform provides the most advanced and reliable solution for our corporate and mobile operator customers.
