Property Developers Charging Operators High Fees to Deploy FTTx

CCTIME, 6/07/11

Mao Qian, chairman of the China Communications Standards Association's (CCSA) transport and access network technology working committee, recently disclosed that a number of residential complex management companies are charging China's major telecom operators high fees to install FTTx in their buildings, averaging RMB 25 per building unit and ranging as high as RMB 50.

According to a source close to China's telecom operators, the Shanghai subway charges operators as much as RMB 5 mln for permission to install any wireless network, such as GSM, 3G, or Wi-Fi, making it difficult for operators to build out their networks in Shanghai's subways.
