Taiwan - Digital Economy and Digital Media - Historical


Recognising the ability of utilising ICT to improve both social and economic development, Taiwan has taken steps to develop a digital economy, encompassing digital media and e-services and building upon the high availability of fixed and mobile broadband networks. Private sector involvement is particularly strong in digital media, with digital media content widely accessible via HFC and IPTV networks. Telecom operators such as Chunghwa Telecom have also invested heavily in digital media as a means to cross-sell additional products to existing telecom customers.

Key developments:

CATV has maintained its subscriber base despite strong competition from Chunghwa

Taiwan’s government has been a strong driver of e-government initiatives

Chunghwa Telecom continues to focus on IPTV as a cross-selling opportunity for its sizeable fixed broadband base
