China Mobile's Wuhan subsidiary (Wuhan Mobile), and the local branch of the State Administration of Radio Film and Television (SARFT) have started to provide triple-play service, a long-awaited project which is now exclusive to Wuhan, Wuhan Mobile employees told the Reporter Thursday.
Triple play service refers to the feeding of broadband, TV and voice call services through a unified interface instead of three different networks. Wuhan Mobile launched a 1,399 yuan ($215.300) family triple-play package Monday for Wuhan residents to enjoy one-year of 2M bandwidth broadband, high-definition interactive TV programs, and mobile phone credit worth 600 yuan ($92.00).
Li Jian, general manager of Wuhan Mobile explained that users can now save 70 percent with the package, as to paying for the three networks separately.
The State Council announced pilot projects for triple-play in 12 cities, which are Wuhan, Beijing, Shanghai, Dalian, Harbin, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Xiamen, Qingdao, Shenzhen, Mianyang, and Changzhutan region in Hunan Province.
