Li­censes given for open­ing up tele­com ser­vices

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

The first group of li­censes for mo­bile vir­tual net­work op­er­a­tors was is­sued by the Min­istry of In­dus­try and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, al­low­ing pri­vate do­mes­tic com­pa­nies to of­fer repack­aged mo­bile ser­vices.

Eleven com­pa­nies re­ceived mo­bile vir­tual net­work op­er­a­tor li­censes.

Chi­nese con­sumers will have more ser­vice choices and a bet­ter user ex­pe­ri­ence, the min­istry added.

State-owned tele­com car­ri­ers still have a tight hold on the mar­ket. Pri­vate com­pa­nies and for­eign en­ter­prises only have lim­ited busi­nesses fo­cus­ing on val­ueadded tele­com ser­vices. (Photo 2)
