China Tower Company–a joint venture between China Telecom (CHA.NYSE, 0728.HKG), China Unicom (CHU.NYSE, 0762.HKG) and China Mobile (CHL.NYSE, 0941.HKG)–could gain nearly a million network towers in mainland China that would allow these network operators to book an estimated profit of as much as RMB148 billion (US$23.99 billion), South China Morning Post reported, citing research firms’ estimates.
