Since the organisation’s early days, ZTE has provided network operators with the equipment they need to build and maintain the telecommunications infrastructure that underpins so much of our daily lives. Whether at home, in the office, or on the go, there is a strong chance that your voice and video calls, messages, and online activities are being made possible by ZTE equipment.
The first ZTE 3G-enabled mobile phones and smartphones landed in the UK in 2006, when they were predominantly distributed and marketed by operator partners as exclusive devices under their own brands. Operators were given the freedom to develop attractive packages and deals for consumers, within the terms of ZTE’s brand positioning and quality control.
Today, ZTE distributes and markets its devices under its own brand, while continuing to demand the highest standards of itself and its partners. ZTE prides itself on meeting rigorous international specifications, regulations, and standards, carrying out regular external audits, and securing relevant certifications.
