ChinaTel - The Emergence of a New Wireless Broadband Service Provider
Recently, some very interesting news on the wireless broadband market has been
emanating from China. A couple years ago, through a reverse merger between
Mortlock Ventures, Inc., a publicly traded Nevada corporation, and Trussnet USA, a small,
U.S.-based, over-the-counter traded company named ChinaTel was formed.
With experience in the design, construction, and deployment of more than 20,000 wireless
projects, management of the ChinaTel Group, Inc. is experienced in development activities,
including engineering, deployment, and operations services of wireless broadband
telecommunications networks. Originally entering China by deploying a Wi-Fi network in
Beijing in support of the 2008 Olympics, ChinaTel has had eyes on a bigger prize—
broadband wireless access.
After purchasing a minority stake in CECT-Chinacomm, which can be increased to 49
percent, ChinaTel begins to realize its broadband vision by utilizing Chinacomm’s operator
licenses from the Chinese goverment for the construction and operation of a 3.5 GHz
wireless braodband system in a 29-city coverage area.. Chinacomm is one of five BTS
license holders in the People’s Republic of China. The three largest carriers, China Mobil,
China Unicom and China Telecom, are focused on mobile telephony and not the wireless
broadband market segment.
Additionally, ChinaTel has upped the ante in China, acquiring a stake in
Golden Bridge Network Communications Company, LTD (Golden Bridge), which gives it a
nine-city, last-mile 4G wireless network, expandable to 100+ cities within China.
Until recently, ChinaTel has been relatively quiet, blocking and tackling, taking care of
day-to-day business, and working behind the scenes setting up these and other
relationships. But is more to come?
