B(E2;0+→2+) values for neutron-rich 132,134,136Te isotopes were measured by Coulomb excitation of radioactive ion beams in inverse kinematics. The results for 132Te and 134Te (N=80,82) show excellent agreement with systematics of lighter Te isotopes, but the B(E2) value for 136Te(N=84) is unexpectedly small.
