China Telecom claims it is an error and won't happen again. Same response as last time and the gazillion times they've been caught previously.

And they don't even need you to have a Chinese device to do these. They are brazenly stealing web traffic and exploiting trust loopholes in the internet's core design. Imagine what they are doing with their own devices and software.
Systems my company does can grab all the packets at line speed and analyse them in real time, so if there is something they are “concerned” about can capture all the packets in the conversation and reconstruct . Voice, video, email the lot. If however the data is encrypted you can’t get to the payload, unless you have the key. You can still see who and what though. The amazing thing is that we give all sorts of stuff out to companies like google or faceache freely as they have the keys !
