Taiwan’s Leading Telco Expected to Be Challenged

Taiwan has developed a dynamic telecommunications industry defined by excellent infrastructure and a very competitive mobile market

Just released, the 25th edition of Paul Budde Communication’s annual report on Taiwan outlines the major developments and key aspects in the mobile, broadband and fixed line telecoms markets.  Comprehensive data is provided on regulatory developments, spectrum assignments and licensing, subscriber statistics, penetration rates and the key market players.

Taiwan’s leading telco Chunghwa Telecom is expected to be challenged by Taiwan’s cable competitors which are on track to complete technology upgrades that will significantly increase the speed of their internet services.  Despite fierce competition in this market the company reported that fixed internet services increased by over 2.5% during 2019.

It is expected that Taiwanese subscribers will continue to benefit from the affordable broadband prices in the local market.

The country’s mobile market is dominated by three operators, and high penetration has resulted in intense competition to gain new subscribers. In recent years this was evidenced in the drive to develop 4G services, which were quickly embraced by consumers. The same drive is being repeated with 5G, with operators gearing up to deploy 5G services in a range of bands later in 2020.

The government announced plans to provide NT$20.5 billion for the development of 5G services and applications. In addition, spectrum is to be assigned for 5G trials.

Taiwan continues rank in the top 10 Asian countries for telecoms maturity according to BuddeComm’s Telecoms Maturity Index.  Compared to other Asian nations, it has high fixed line, fixed-broadband penetration and mobile broadband penetration.
