China Telecom has introduced a new rule for its IPTV set-top box (STB) tender, stating that vendors who submit bids priced below cost must provide “sufficient explanation” for doing so, or the bid will be rejected.

According to Marbridge Consulting, China Telecom added that its 2012 IPTV smart STB procurement tender is currently in the testing stage, and will later solicit bids.
