Asymmetric regulation of operators' game: China Mobile strives to secure a fixed license

according to insiders, China Mobile has submitted materials and hopes the Ministry of industry and information technology to cancel the relevant "document 686", hoping to obtain a fixed license, and the desire is becoming stronger and stronger, but it has not been approved yet. It is expected that the game about whether China Mobile can obtain a fixed license will be white hot this year

China Mobile bluntly hopes to obtain a fixed license

insiders said that as early as last year, after the national development and Reform Commission investigated the antitrust of Chinatelecom and China Unicom, Chinatelecom and China Unicom had heard the rumor that China Mobile hopes to obtain a fixed license directly by itself, rather than by its Tietong. China Mobile most hopes to obtain the operation right of fixed broadband

after the Spring Festival, it was also reported that Chinatelecom and China Unicom wanted their employees to be mentally prepared for the competition of China Mobile into broadband

a few days ago, when attending the general meeting of shareholders, Xi Guohua, chairman of China Mobile, also said that in the past, due to China Mobile's large market share, it was not regulated to speed up the intelligent and digital transformation of plastic equipment, and was unable to obtain a fixed license. With the passage of many years, I hope that the regulatory authorities can now cancel asymmetric regulation, and I hope that China Mobile can obtain a full-service fixed license as soon as possible

on May 29, Wang Xiaochu, chairman of Chinatelecom, responded, "I hope the existing control rules will remain unchanged, but it will ultimately be decided by the regulatory authorities". The implication should be that we do not want to change the existing licensing rules. On the same day, Chang Xiaobing, chairman of China Unicom, did not respond to this question

so far, China Mobile's hope to obtain a full-service fixed license has been put on the table

the imprisonment of Document No. 686

the existing policy obstacles mainly come from the licenses issued to the three major operators after the reorganization of the telecommunications industry in 2008. At that time, Chinatelecom acquired Unicom C for 66.2 billion and obtained a mobile license. China Mobile's basic telecommunications business operation license did not include fixed services, and China Unicom was originally a full-service operator

later, on December 25th, 2009, the Ministry of industry and information technology issued a "Notice of the Ministry of industry and information technology on further implementing the spirit of the relevant documents on standardizing the order of the telecommunications market" (Ministry of industry and information technology No. 686), which clearly pointed out that China Mobile can only operate wireless broadband access services using TD-SCDMA networks, and the wired broadband business is authorized to operate by China Tietong Group Co., Ltd

this was interpreted by the drive system industry as a policy prohibiting China Mobile from directly operating fixed broadband. Since then, document 686 has become a curse of China Mobile

the broadband antitrust case provides an opportunity to reassess the license issue.

for 2 "innovation for development" is the theme of the company's development. Why only China Mobile did not have a fixed license during the reorganization in 2008 was mainly due to the concern about the imbalance of competition at that time, which was a measure of asymmetric regulation

when attending the 2007 working meeting of Chinatelecom group, a person in charge of the former Ministry of information industry said at the meeting that at present, China's telecom market is facing serious imbalances in the competitive landscape. China Mobile is the largest and the best. This year, China Mobile accounts for 70% to 80% of the new business revenue and profits of telecom operation. In contrast to China Mobile, the growth of fixed line operators is more difficult

at that time, he said that the Ministry of information industry was stepping up research on how to adjust through regulatory policies, such as issuing 3G mobile licenses and implementing full-service operations to reverse this pattern, which should not only prevent duplicate construction, but also carry out effective competition

however, since China Mobile's operation of TD-SCDMA was not very satisfactory, the Ministry of industry and information technology organized a comprehensive evaluation of the development indicators of TD-SCDMA and the competitive pattern of the telecommunications market around the end of 2010. China Mobile has also been complaining, especially after the national development and Reform Commission investigated the antitrust of Chinatelecom and China Unicom in 2011, it seems that China Mobile has encountered a good opportunity to apply for a fixed license in the name of anti broadband monopoly

over the past six months, the issue of whether China Mobile should be granted a fixed license has been debated repeatedly. It has been six months since the voice was very high at the end of last year, and China Mobile has not been granted a license, which should be related to the opposition of its competitors. However, people familiar with the matter said that the matter must be known this year, whether China Mobile is granted a fixed license or not, there will be a statement. Sina Technology ()
