Information Regarding the Making of Online payment for school in Ghaziabad As China’s internet market grew, so its wireless data sector developed. More than 640 million people have cell phones in China, and the cell-phone operators open their platforms for third parties to provide mobile data services such as ringtone downloads and games and online payment for school in Ghaziabad. Before China’s internet was large enough to attract advertisers, mobile data services formed a key part of revenue for such companies as Ten cent, Sina, and Sohu. Besides the basics, many creative ideas have flourished the most obvious example being the use of SMS (or short messaging services) voting to decide the winner of a nationwide singing contest, Super Girl. The television show was similar to American Idol. Young contestants (all girls) engaged in rounds of competition against each other; in each episode, two had to go. SMS votes from the television audience made the decision. This competition (in 2005) drew the largest audiences in Chinese TV history. The winner received more than 3.5 million votes in the final contest. It was a huge success for the TV station that organized the show, and raked in massive rewards for the firm that ran the SMS voting platform Link tone. Apart from having the largest internet market in the world, China also has the biggest cell phone market. By the end of 2008, its cell phone user tally had reached more than 640 million The salient question was how to access and monetize that 640 million-strong network. The sector is highly regulated and run by government-owned cell phone operators. China Mobile and its smaller rival China Unicom had the exclusive right to provide cell phone services to the country’s 1.3 billion people Mobile data services such as SMS have been available in China since 1992, but until third-party companies became involved, the services were limited to simple messages sent between cell phone users, as an alternative form of communication. From Link tone IPO prospectus: “As one of the original participants in the wireless value-added services market, we have developed well-established relationships with China Mobile and China Unicom. In particular, we worked closely with China Mobile in formulating its wireless value- added services business of online payment for school in Noida strategy that ultimately culminated in the launch of its Monternet TM platform In 2000, the cell phone operators hoped to provide some extra data services to their customers. But the questions were, what to provide and how? The cell phone operators did not know what to do with [mobile data] services. So they let third-party companies design new services and provide them to their customers,” said J.P. Gann, managing director of Aiming Venture Partners, a venture capital firm active in China. Gan was also a former chief financial officer of the leading third-party mobile data service provider, Kongzhong. The evolution of the market for cell phone services in China followed the industry development experienced in Japan and Korea, where cell-phone operators have provided platforms for third-party service providers to offer mobile data services to their customers. China Mobile launched its Monterey platform for mobile data services in November 2000 and China Unicom launched its Uni-Info platform in May 2001, using a business model similar to the model used in Japan and Korea.
