Shenzhen to merge network programs
Shenzhen is one of the major cities to undergo a trial integration program, aimed to make a compatible system allowing users to use phones, the Internet and watch TV using only one cable system or wireless device. Right now these networks are operated separately by different providers giving access to the services.
State Council vowed complete integration by the year 2015, and the program will be launched in January and will gather speed through pilot projects in 2010 to 2012. This program is expected to generate domestic investment by 600 billion yuan possibly in the next three years. Further more the program would generate 200,000 job opportunities in developing and production of digital content plus manufacture and installation of units.
