BEIJING -- China's telecommunications industry registered steady growth in revenue in the first 11 months of this year, official data shows.

The combined industrial revenue rose 3.5 percent year-on-year to 1.25 trillion yuan (about $191.3 billion) in the January-November period, up 0.2 percentage points from growth in the first 10 months, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
