 Will Chinas Radio and television industry become the Dragon slaughtering warrior in the low valley

On October 12, China Radio and television network Co., Ltd. was officially established, becoming the fourth largest operator. It will provide 5g service and issue No. 192 segment.

Can radio and television bring cheaper 5g packages

In fact, 5g technology can also be applied to low frequency band, and the 5g band held by China Radio and television is 700MHz. The advantage of this frequency band compared with other high frequency bands is that the signal penetration is strong and the coverage area is wide.

Take the 2.6GHz band adopted by mobile as an example, the data transmission rate of this band is about 1Gbps, but the coverage radius is only 300-500m, and the power consumption is huge.

However, the transmission rate of 700MHz band is far less than that of other high frequency bands, which is about 100Mbps. The actual use is estimated to be no better than 4G.

In addition, due to the wide coverage of 700MHz, the number of users in the signal coverage area will increase significantly. However, the optical fiber bandwidth of access base station is limited, so it may be difficult to reach the peak rate in the presence of competition.

700MHz as the main frequency band for 5g may face the speed problem, so it is more suitable for 5g signal coverage in remote rural areas. In the areas with large urban population density, higher frequency band is still needed.

Where there is no 2.6GHz or 4.9ghz base station, 5g signal may be displayed on the mobile phone, but the overall rate will be greatly reduced.

Therefore, from the perspective of operation cost, the cost of base station construction and operation and maintenance in 700MHz band is indeed relatively low, and the operation cost is reflected in the user package.

Coupled with the scramble for users, it can be predicted that Chinas Radio and television package charges will be relatively cheap in the initial stage.

Of course, a big premise of cheap package is that the signal is stable, and the service cant be too bad. If these cant be done, consumers are not willing to use the cheap package.

Can radio and television shake the position of the three royal families

With the entry of Chinas Radio and television industry, many people expect to shake the monopoly position of the three companies in the communication industry. However, it seems that it is difficult to have much impact on the original market.

First of all, from the perspective of infrastructure construction, Chinas Radio and television is far behind the three major operators. Even if the radio and television still draws Alibaba into the Bureau, it is difficult to reach the base station scale of the three operators in a short time.

Therefore, radio and television choose to sign a contract with China Mobile, build base stations with China Mobile, share 700MHz frequency band, and use 5g base stations of China Radio and television. In addition to the 5g base stations built by radio and television, they will also be able to use the base stations of China Mobile. The network speed used by the two users is the same.

According to the interim report of major operators, by June 2020, the number of mobile users of China Mobile has reached 947 million, including 760 million 4G users and 70.2 million 5g users, and 343 million mobile users of China Telecom.

Unless radio and television have strong enough competitiveness, such as better service and cheaper price, it is difficult for users to change operators.

In addition, Chinas Radio and television itself has great problems. Different from China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom, the broadcast and television network has been distributed in various provinces and cities for many years and is governed by different regions.

Moreover, with the separation of production and broadcasting, the content production ability of radio and Television Department is also being challenged by the Internet platforms such as iqiyi and Youku.

In general, broadcasting and televisions entry into 5g is actually a self-help. We hope to take advantage of 5g license to accelerate the integration of national one network and get out of the trough.

Write it at the end

We cant know whether we can become the Dragon slaughtering warrior we are looking forward to, or maybe the Dragon slaughtering boy will eventually become a dragon.
