For more than a century, the United States has been the world’s biggest economy, accounting for more than 24 percent of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP) in 2016. But won’t be too long before China’s economy surpasses the U.S., which the Centre for Economics and Business Research predicts will happen in 2029. Meanwhile, the government of China has stated its commitment to ensuring full internet access to every one of its citizens within the next two years, meaning that very soon China will represent one-third of the world’s online population. The repercussions of this impending boom in connectivity cannot be overemphasized for multinational enterprises as they consider their expansion strategy into China.

Concurrent with these developments, China Telecom Americas has partnered with Intelisys, Inc. to extend China Telecom’s service offerings. As a result of this partnership, Intelisys’ Sales Partners gain access to China Telecom Americas’ local expertise and customer service for deploying and managing trans-Pacific network services between the U.S. and China, the world’s two largest economies. China Telecom Americas’ global communication solutions include Cloud Services, direct-connects to partner cloud companies such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, data center and colocation services, global internet, network and managed services, Equipment, Unified Communications and its China 4008 Toll Free service.
