China likely to expand tri-network convergence pilot to nationwide within 2013
BEIJING, Aug 20, 2013 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
China's tri-network convergence pilot
project would likely be expanded to nationwide within this year,
industry insiders told the Xinhua-run China Securities Journal on
Tuesday at the International Exhibition for Radio, TV and Film
Zhang Yanbin, a researcher from the Ministry of Industry and
Information Technology, said that the Chinese government would push
forward tri-network convergence, but it had to show an attitude and
resolution to support sound operation of the China Broadcasting and
TV Network Company.
He added that it was difficult for the broadcasting and TV system
to boost the company's comprehensive development by itself.
The company, with its formation plan approved this March, was
expected to integrate the network resources, businesses and
operations of the broadcasting and TV systems in more than 30
provinces and municipalities and become the fourth basic telecom
operator in the country.
The government has approved 4.5 billion yuan of registered capital
for the company, but the concrete capital contribution plan has not
yet been set.
Tri-network convergence means integration of the broadcasting and
TV network, the telecom network and the internet.
