Submission + - China Telecom Pledged to Stop Monopolistic Practic (xinhuanet.com)

They also acknowledge the existence of monopolistic practices in reply to this investigation which is the first of its kind against major Chinese state-owned enterprises. Being state-owned companies, their profits are supposedly belonging to the nation, but they also become the "golden rice bowls" for their management, employees, and their supervising departments and officials. Luckily, inter-department politics can bring in some level of check and balance in a strange way.
