China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has decided to adjust the mobile network interconnection settlement charges. From 1 January 2014, calls from China Mobile's network (excluding the TD-SCDMA network) to China Telecom or China Unicom will continue to incur a settlement charge of CNY 0.06 per minute. However, the settlement charge for calls from China Telecom or Unicom to a China Mobile number will be lowered to CNY 0.04 from the current rate of CNY 0.06 per minute. The charge for calls between China Telecom and China Unicom will also remain at CNY 0.06 per minute. Interconnection charges for calls to TD-SCDMA users will remain unchanged at CNY 0.06 per minute and the charge for calls from China' Mobile's 3G network to the other two operators will remain at CNY 0.012 per minute. The SMS interconnection fee will also be adjusted from CNY 0.03 to CNY 0.01 per SMS and MMS interconnection fees have been lowered to CNY 0.05 from CNY 0.10 per MMS. The MIIT will assess the interconnection settlement policy every two years.
