The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology promulgated the "Notice on the Quality of Telecommunications Services" and informed about the telecommunications services in the first quarter of 2016. It is noteworthy that this report for the first time announced the status of complaints from virtual operators (hereinafter referred to as "virtual business"), and the virtual business became the "stricken area" for spam messages.
According to the report, in the first quarter of this year, 12321 network bad and spam reporting and receiving centers accepted 31,411 valid spam messages, a year-on-year increase of 49.4% and a month-on-month decrease of 27%. The total number of spam messages for mobile communication resale was 7,237, which was a year-on-year increase of 364.9% and a decrease of 40.5% from the previous quarter.
In addition, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has continued to increase its efforts to promote the "real-name system." Earlier, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued a notice requesting all basic telecom companies to ensure that the real-name rate of all telephone users of the enterprise before December 31, 2016 will reach 95% or more, and that all telephone users will register their real names before June 30, 2017. In addition, at the end of April, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology also issued the “Circular on Enhancing Standardized Management and Promoting the Healthy Development of Mobile Communication Resale Service” to require the virtual business to immediately carry out self-examination and self-correction, and within one month, register the previous unnamed, Falsely registered phone numbers complete the registration of user identity information.
“The current promotion of real-name system is not too difficult for basic operators. Although the new network users of the three basic operators reached the lowest point last year, in the long run, real-name system promotion will prompt them to provide more targeted services to users.” According to Min Jing, deputy inspector of the Department of Industry and Security of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, on real-name system promotion, “virtual operators still have certain problems. They have just entered the communications field and are eager to develop users, which is a hard-hit area for real-name system promotion.”
Real name system "hard-hit area"
The registration of real identity information of telephone users that has been fully implemented since September 1, 2013 (hereinafter referred to as "real-name registration") reached a small climax after two years. Starting from September 1, 2015, according to the unified arrangements of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, China began to implement the real-name registration of the mobile phone number. The implementation of the mobile phone number is the strictest in history. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has set a "military order": Before December 31 of that year, the real-name rate rose to more than 90%. Users who fail to complete the real-name registration system in time will be shut down by the operator.
Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has once again resorted to big tricks, requiring all basic telecom companies to ensure that the real-name rate of all telephone users of the company will reach 95% or more by December 31, 2016, and all telephone users will have real-name registration by June 30, 2017. At the same time, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has also issued a notice requesting the phony businessmen to immediately conduct self-examination and self-correction, and by the end of May, complete registration of user identity information on telephone numbers with unregistered real names and false registrations.
Since the launch of the telephone real-name system in 2013, telecom operators have basically implemented the real-name system as required. As of the first quarter of this year, the national real-name registration rate of users has reached 92%, which exceeds the 90% ratio prescribed in the previous ‘task’,” said Jing Jing.
However, there are also hidden concerns behind the results. “Now virtual operators have become an important source of spam messages. There are also certain problems in the promotion of real-name systems.” The relevant person of the Institute of Telecommunications Research of the Ministry of Industry told 21st Century Business Herald reporter that “The channel extension of virtual operators is not in depth. The control is not strict, as the main body just entering the market, management experience is also relatively lacking."
In fact, as virtual operators gradually enter the market in the past two years, many people who want to handle non-real-name business cards have turned to virtual business. This also makes the virtual operator business a centralized place for sales cards and fraud cards that do not want to be brand names. According to statistics, in the recent malicious fraudulent messages, nearly 44% came from segment 170/171.
However, relevant person of 12321 network and spam report reception center pointed out to 21st Century Business Herald reporter that the virtual operator and paragraph 170/171 should not be across the board. "From the sources of the total amount of reports, in fact, the proportion of reports by basic operators is much higher than that of virtual operators. The amount reported by basic operators accounts for about 70%-80% of the total, and virtual operators only account for 20%. -30%."
However, in terms of complaint rate, the prospects of virtual operators are still not optimistic. “The user base of the virtual operator is too small, so from the current situation, the complaint rate is high.” The aforementioned person from the Institute of Telecommunications Research of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology emphasized to the 21st Century Business Herald reporter. At the end of April this year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology organized a telecommunications company to rapidly shut down more than 140,000 telephone numbers involving fraudulent communications and other crimes, among which the number of basic telecommunications companies was 85,189, accounting for only about 0.0085% of total users, and the virtual operators Number 60202, accounting for about 0.3%, more than 35 times the level of the basic operator.
Virtual business innovation
Although the virtual business was affixed with the label of "real disaster zone" in the real name system, it is worth mentioning that part of the virtual business has started the road of innovation.
"It is understood that the attitude of virtual operators in promoting real-name systems is still very positive overall." The relevant person of 12321 network bad news report center told reporters of the 21st Century Business Herald, "including the system records of SMS, abnormal number shutdown, etc." In response to the processing method, virtual business may be better than the basic operator."
According to the 21st Century Business Herald reporter learned earlier, Snail Mobile has completed a connection with Guo Zhengtong, which has enabled the uploading and verification of people's licenses online. At the same time, it has adjusted the product pricing strategy, raised the price of the card-free, and shut down the SMS function; It also established a 24-hour reporting hotline 10040 rev 7 and spam message reporting platform to encourage people to actively report non-real-name card sales activities around them.
"Snail is continuing to promote the real name system, to ensure that new users 100% real name registration, and gradually increase the old user real name registration rate." Chen Yan, president of Snail Mobile expressed this.
The reporter was informed that as of May 9th, Snail Mobile has developed more than 6 million users of resale business, and 12% of the users have not yet completed the real name system certification. Currently, snail mobile has basically completed the verification of the second ID card for the existing users. The phone card purchased without real names or false information has been notified through official website, short message, return visit, and newspaper registration. “The current work is still underway. The specific data has not yet been fully calculated," said the relevant person of the snail movement.
Despite its positive attitude, in terms of telephone management, virtual business also faces certain industry problems. "Virtual Business relies on basic operators to intercept spam messages," Xu Chongxian, Director of Snail Mobile Marketing, told the 21st Century Business Herald reporter, "Vendors can't actively shield keywords. Short messages or high-messaging SMS can only be passed by the underlying operator. List of charges sent for post-event control."
