Wang Xiaochu made the above remarks at the recent China Unicom Interim Results Conference. He said that 5G will enter the investment period next year. The company is currently working with China Telecom andChina MobileThere are two possibilities for cooperation and cooperation. One is to cooperate with China Telecom, to build and share, and to operate separately. The second is to cooperate with China to move roaming mode. The company will compare the two modes to choose China Unicom's more favorable mode.
At that time, he said that the biggest advantage of China Unicom and China Telecom cooperation is that the two 5G frequencies are very close, which can improve spectrum efficiency, faster bandwidth and more effective network quality. "In this way, our overall idea is to build and share together, and the two sides will jointly build, who will build and maintain, and the maintenance cost will be greatly saved; their respective operations will keep their own brands and customers to operate; settlement is simple."
He also revealed that China Unicom is also negotiating with China Mobile to cooperate in a roaming manner.
"Then I am not so anxious about 5G. For example, I can build it in the central city. The built area no longer needs to roam. Most of the areas can roam to China Mobile, so that my users can enjoy the 5G service experience on the whole network. At the same time, it has improved the efficiency of China Mobile's 5G network, and it is also a win-win situation," Wang Xiaochu said.
This strategy is undoubtedly brilliant, which also solves a confusion of people, that is why China Unicom's 5G investment is not high.
Wang Xiaochu said that this year China Unicom's total capital expenditure control will remain unchanged at the beginning of the year, with a total investment of 8 billion yuan. In the first half of the year, the company's capital expenditure was 22 billion yuan, of which 58% was invested in mobile networks and 15% was invested in fixed-line broadband.
China Unicom's 8 billion 5G investment this year, China Mobile is 24 billion. It seems that there is a gap, but China Unicom does not seem to care about building a 5G network everywhere.
The rumor that the operator's financial network earlier obtained was that China Unicom and China Telecom jointly established a 5G network, but it seems that China Mobile does not exclude cooperation with China Unicom. This may be related to Yang Jie’s appointment as chairman of China Mobile.
In the past, China Mobile's network leased to China Unicom, there seems to be no possibility.
If China Unicom cooperates with China Mobile's 5G network, it means a huge progress in history. After more than a decade of mobile, China Unicom will not be so vicious and spoof each other.
