The Information Office of the State Council held a regular briefing on the policies of the State Council on the 21st. The briefing introduced the related situation of network speed-up and fee-reduction, and answered reporters'questions. Some journalists asked that in 2015, a "Guiding Opinion of the General Office of the State Council on Accelerating the Construction of High-Speed Broadband Networks and Promoting Speed-up and Fee-Reduction" was issued. What changes have taken place in the focus of this work in the past four years? What new measures will be taken to optimize the package?
Wenku highlighted the situation of fee reduction, he pointed out that because there are different priorities in annual fee reduction, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has been promoting the transfer of non-zero traffic to next month, and roaming business, which started with voice roaming, has attracted great attention. MIIT has taken measures to cancel it together with operating enterprises; and later, a whole country has taken measures to cancel it. The difference between data and local data was eliminated last year.
Wenku pointed out that this year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology promoted the reduction of fees, mainly to solve imbalances and inadequate problems, and strive to meet the multi-level and diversified needs of users. China has 1.6 billionMobile phoneUsers, these 1.6 billion users may have more or less a variety of needs each year.
Wenku introduced that this year's tariff reduction mainly focused on several aspects: First, the demand for low-income and elderly groups, to promote basic telecommunications enterprises to launch a "floor price" funding program throughout the country. The second is to give the greatest preferential treatment to poor households who have set up archives and licensing cards, so as to help the network precisely alleviate poverty. Thirdly, for the users of small and medium-sized enterprises, by directly lowering the tariff price and increasing the promotion rate free of charge, the average tariff reduction will be achieved by 15%, which will support the development of small and medium-sized enterprises and private economy.
Wenku pointed out that another work that we are concerned about is the set meal. The set meal was originally designed for 1.6 billion different users. Based on some preferential considerations, there are many sets of meals. This year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the three major operating enterprises have an important task, that is, to standardize the set-up of the set meal. Mainly from four aspects: First, to reduce the number of packages sold by more than 15%, focusing on reducing some early packages, especially those with expensive prices and complex rules, which affect the choice of users, this is the focus of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The second is to promote enterprises to do a good job in the pilot step pricing fees, and promote the simple and free combination of packages. Thirdly, enterprises are required to publicize the list of fees in all business places. Fourth, the problem of old users choosing new packages.
