At present, the broadband speed-up operation carried out by operators is mainly to replace the previous copper transmission cables with faster and more stable optical fiber transmission.
According to the reporter of "Daily Economic News", at present, broadband operators have basically completed the transformation of urban areas and installed optical fiber at the entrance of residential quarters, but encountered many difficulties in the "last one kilometer". A mouth is expensive to enter.
A person from a telecommunications operator told the reporter of "Daily Economic News" that "property requires many forms of money, some require a one-time fee; some require a single-family cooperation fee; some require a construction deposit, which is basically non-refundable in the future. Some do n’t ask for money directly, but share it, or let the operator pay for the renovation of residential facilities. ”
In fact, this situation exists in various places. News about property companies collecting entrance fees from operators is often seen in newspapers.
It is understood that the entrance fee is roughly divided into two categories: first, the property cooperates with some second- or third-level broadband operators, signs exclusive agreements, and refuses other operators to enter after receiving money; second, no matter which operator has to pay , Into the building wiring, open shafts, accounting for community resources and fees. In addition, during construction, some staff of the property company "required to get a card" and asked for small gifts to open a door.
The above-mentioned telecommunications operator said that as long as the entrance fee is not excessive, the operator can understand it, but some are too harsh. "Generally it is tens of thousands of yuan, and the others are seven hundred thousand and eight hundred thousand yuan, and it is cash, and no invoice is issued."
A front-line staff member of a broadband operator said in an interview with reporters, "On one side, users complained about the inadequate network speed, and on the other hand, the property was not allowed to enter. Obviously, the optical fiber has reached the gate of the community, but they cannot get in. Both sides are affected. Tang Seng meat, everyone wants to bite. "
Operators call for legal regulation
So should the property charge entrance fees?
In 2007, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Construction issued notices requiring the simultaneous construction of communication pipes in residential quarters and commercial and residential buildings, as well as in-building communication pipes and concealed lines, and reserved centralized wiring transfer rooms for the installation of communication line wiring equipment. After the completion, it will be transferred to the owner. In other words, the communication facilities in the community are shared by all the owners, and the property company does not have the power to use these facilities for profit.
In 2013, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Housing and Construction jointly issued two standards: "Code for the Design of Fiber-to-the-Home Communication Facilities in Residential Areas and Residential Buildings" and "Code for the Construction and Acceptance of the Project for Optical-to-Home Communication Facilities in Residential Areas and Residential Buildings" Guarantee the user's right to freely choose an operator.
According to the Beijing Business Daily, in November 2013, the Beijing Municipal Administration for Industry and Commerce, the Communications Administration Bureau and the Housing and Urban Construction Commission joined forces with telecommunications operators and residential property management companies to address the high cost and Regulations and rectifications were made for irregularities such as slow speed and poor service. As of the end of October of that year, the industry and commerce department had conducted investigations and evidence collection on 8 real estate developers, 32 property companies, and 15 broadband operators. 47 cases were filed and 35 cases were closed. The fines totaled more than 6.8 million yuan.
But after a while, they are back to the old way, and many properties still do their own thing.
Tao Xujun, deputy director of telecommunications industry research at Nomura Research (Shanghai), told reporters in the Daily Economic News that China does not have a telecommunications law and notifications and documents are not too binding. Therefore, the communications industry needs a comprehensive telecommunications law to ensure In addition, the supervision of local authorities must be in place.
"It is important for the government to supervise after the government has issued a document. No one will supervise and the operators will only lose money." The above-mentioned broadband operators have called for the telecommunications law to be formulated as soon as possible, and the competent authorities to increase the management and evaluation of properties. Form institutional strength, otherwise, as before, only a gust of wind will return to the origin.
