The National Development and Reform Commission, China's top economic planning agency, in 2011, started to investigate a suspected monopoly held by China Telecom and China Unicom in the broadband business.

The two operators, which together account for 90 percent of China's broadband business, could face fines of up to 10 percent of their annual revenues from Internet services, the NDRC said when it launched the probe.
