China Telecom lets virtual operators set tariffs, paper says

China Telecom Corp. Ltd. (00728.HK) will leave its virtual network operators to set mobile tariffs themselves, a move market analysts say will trigger a price war among carriers, Economic Information Daily reported Wednesday. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has issued 19 virtual operator licenses so far, with 14 linking up with China Telecom. China Telecom plans to roll out pilot services in 105 cities across 30 provinces in the second quarter, the report said.
