In the face of market changes, fixed communications operators in China have begun to shift their business. As early as 2003, China Netcom set a goal of shifting its role from a traditional fixed network voice operator to a broadband communications and multimedia service provider. In order to facilitate this shift, China Netcom has decided to invest over CNY10 billion on developing ICT services to become a first-class service provider by 2015.
