This morning, the second session of the 13th National Peoples Congress opened in Beijing. The annual Government Work Report also has many peoples livelihood gift packages in the first time seized the hot search.
The most heated discussion among netizens is that one of them is no longer unfamiliar - carrying number to transfer network. Premier Li Keqiang made it clear in his report that:
This year, the average broadband tariff of small and medium-sized enterprises will be reduced by 15%, and the average mobile network traffic tariff will be reduced by more than 20%. We will carry outnumber-carrying network transfernationwide and standardize the set-up of meals so that the cost reduction is real and clear to consumers.
Subsequently, on the ministerial corridor, Miao Wei, Minister of Industry and Information Technology, also said that all mobile phone users will be able to carry their numbers freely before the end of the year.
Why mention this trifle in the government work report?
In fact, this is not a small matter. Among them, it also involves a considerable area of interest pattern adjustment.
What is the number transfer?
Popular point is that the number can be carried, mobile phone does not change the number, mobile phone users can freely change different operators without changing the number.
The benefits are obvious. For consumers, it was too troublesome to change network numbers. This time, if they are not satisfied with their own operators, they can change their old numbers to new homes at any time, and no longer need to send out My mobile phone number has been changed, please save. For the operator market, carrying network numbers also helps to impact the existing pattern, forcing operators to focus on improving product quality, fair and effective competition.
This time, the Government Work Report proposed to carry out the number-carrying network transfer throughout the country. In fact, there are quite a long summary of the previous situation.
As early as 2010, the first batch of pilot work of carrying number to network was launched in Tianjin and Hainan. In 2014, the second batch of pilot projects also targeted Jiangxi, Hubei and Yunnan. On December 1, last year, the five provinces and municipalities synchronously launched the new process of accepting the service of carrying number to transfer network.
According to the data of China Institute of Information and Communications, as of the end of December 2018, the total number of transfers reached 1.67 million, of which 630,000 were added last year, an increase of 62% over the previous year.
And the ambition of the number-carrying network is more clear - the implementation of the whole country and the realization by the end of the year.
Looking deeply, the continuous strengthening of carrying forward work in recent years also reflects the countrys firm promotion of speed-up and fee-reduction.
At the same time, Prime Minister Li Keqiang made clear five measures to promote speed-up and fee-reduction in the State Council executive meeting held on May 13, 2015. Raising network speed and lowering network fees has become a task entrusted to telecom operators by the government.
Over the past few years, the goal of increasing speed and reducing fees has also been implemented in a planned and step-by-step manner. Shimadzu has sorted out a clue chain from her Government Work Report of the last three years:
First, abolish the domestic long-distance and roaming charges of mobile phones (2017); second, abolish the roaming charges of traffic, mobile network traffic charges will be reduced by at least 30% (2018); third, the national mobile number transfer network just landed today, the average mobile network traffic charges will be reduced by more than 20%.
The goal is also clear, that is, to optimize the tariff structure, simplify the tariff scheme, and enhance the transparency of tariffs, so as to truly enhance the sense of access of users. In the sense of promoting the transformation and upgrading of the real economy, materialization such as mobile network, naturally needs to improve the quality, efficiency and competitiveness.
Miao Wei, Minister of Industry and Information Technology, was interviewed at the ministerial passage of the CPPCC and CPPCC sessions
The task is clear. How about advancing it?
In the past two years, mobile long-distance roaming fees and traffic roaming fees have been cancelled. The unit price of mobile traffic communication fees has also decreased by 63% in the past year, and people have generally tasted the benefits.
As for the main target of this stage and the progress of carrying number to network in the whole country?
In 2017, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology formulated and issued the Information and Communication Industry Development Plan (2016-2020). For the first time, it mentioned the need to promote the implementation of mobile phone subscriber number carrying service throughout the country.
Last year, at the joint group meeting of the 13th session of the CPPCC National Committee, Luo Wen, then Vice Minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said in response to the topic of carrying numbers to the Internet, that the work has been actively and steadily advancing, there are certain technical difficulties in the actual pilot operation, and it will take at least 2020 to achieve nationwide implementation.
Now, a year has passed, and the voice of realizing in 2019 has been settled. In this regard, some experts in the telecommunications industry pointed out that this means that, after the experimental stage, the number management platform of China Institute of Information and Communications commissioned by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has solved the process and technical problems of carrying numbers into the network in the past, which can be said to be ready for the full implementation of the whole country.
Based on the previous pilot, Shima also learned the feedback from the first tasters. After all, there was a passage on the internet: It takes more than 30 programs to successfully carry a number to the internet.
Operators are obviously not ready to release people at the checkpoint of carrying numbers to the network.
First of all, there is a general strict access and broad access. According to the Mobile Telephone User Number Carrier Test Management Measures of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, before users apply for mobile phone number transfer business, they can not bind the contract machine, no arrears and no package agreement exists. With the increase of the number of pilot operators, some operators have played a routine in the package agreement.
For example, Jiangxi Unicom presented 200M domestic traffic to some single-card users for 5 months; Hubei Unicom bound 10 MMS with 0 yuan package for some users without explicit notification, the longest contract expiration date is July 2020; a mobile user sunned out the 4G optional package of China Mobile which expired on December 31, 2100...
Reduction of number-carrying service points also occurs from time to time. In February last year, Wuhan Branch of Hubei Mobile Company was complained by netizens: before, it could have handled the number transfer network in its own urban area, but later, it reduced the number of business halls that could handle this business to three. It only needs 300 kilometers to carry around the city.
In addition, the situation that the third-party authentication code messages such as Wechat, QQ, Bank and Taobao can not be received after carrying number to network has become the last straw to overwhelm the willing users.
Some Island friends came to say, Carry it around, its just a siege of the city.
NetizensFeedback on Operators Package Route
Fortress besieged does not mean that you cant get out of it.
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has previously indicated that in the process of carrying out the number-carrying network, more time is needed to solve the settlement and network transformation problems nationwide, and to establish a third-party database.
Settlement mainly involves the settlement between operators, especially the adjustment of three major interests.
In addition, the docking of multiple systems and databases involved in carrying number to network is also the most important task for technological breakthroughs and improvement.
The implementation of number carrying requires that the data modification and updating of network users have high timeliness and unity. On the surface, individuals choose to modify operators, but technically they need to modify data records quickly and provide new access paths. As mentioned before, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has done a good job of technology reserve to a certain extent during the pilot period, and has built and improved the overall structure.
In view of the artificial obstruction of carrying on, the Measures for the Management of Mobile Telephone Users Pilot Transfer Network further explicitly requires operators not to add processing conditions without authorization and prohibit unfair competition through carrying on the network; the relevant regulatory authorities have also formulated corresponding management measures and service quality assessment indicators, such as the current success rate of the application of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology for operators carrying on the network transfer. More than 70% is required.
At the same time, the process change of CITIC helps to reduce the obstruction from usersformer owners.
According to the new pilot process launched in December last year, users can choose to send short messages to inquire about their qualifications and apply for authorization codes, and within one hour after the completion of the portability business, they can officially transfer to the new operators.
The purpose of the states implementation of carrying numbers to transfer networks is to benefit the people. Any operator who emphasizes the sustainability of business and ignores the corresponding restrictive clauses will ultimately damage the interests of the public. From the micro point of view, it does not respect consumersautonomous choice, but from the macro point of view, it is contrary to the momentum of industry innovation and sustainable development. When the trick succeeds, how can the customers resources and advantages be maintained?
Senior personage and island sister chatted about the ups and downs of carrying number to network in recent years, technical issues are not the core element at present. What is the government and the people watching now?
Government Work Report for the first time mentions carrying numbers to the Internet, in fact, in order to break the barrier of interests set up a military warrant. It is necessary to further reduce the threshold for the promotion of carrying work in the whole country so that consumers can really enjoy the convenience measures. At the same time, operators must be prepared for the technology and set-up. Only in the competition for users, can each company really become strong.
