China Telecom Americas furthers U.S. presence with its new Chicago office

China Telecom Americas (NYSE: CHA) continues to stretch its wings in the U.S. domestic market by opening a new office in Chicago, a major hub for multinational businesses.

Although the service provider may be new to the area, China and Chicago already have a strong affiliation with one another as the city currently is the home of 300 companies that have branch offices in China.

Donald Tan, president of China Telecom Americas said that they "have seen a growing demand for diverse, reliable communication from companies, especially in the Chicago region."

The city is not only the home to a number of large financial, manufacturing and pharmaceutical companies, which are all looking for an alternative connectivity source to APAC and China, but also to 30 China-based companies.
