  • Marbridge Consulting reports Alcatel (ALU -0.1%) was the only Western telecom equipment provider to receive a large share of a China Telecom (CHA +0.2%) 4G equipment tender.
  • Local equipment giants ZTE (ZTCOY.PK) and Huawei are received 32% and 28.9% of the order, respectively. Alcatel came in at #3 with 16.6%, and was followed by China's New Postcom (6.4%) and Datang (5.7%). Ericsson, Nokia, and Fiberhome (another local firm) received less than 5% of the order between them.
