Taiwan - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Taiwan has developed a dynamic telecommunications industry defined by excellent telecommunications infrastructure and a very competitive mobile market. Private investors are attracted to Taiwan due to its regulatory certainty, market maturity, an educated workforce and highly clustered ICT sector that sits at the heart of Taiwan’s economic development.

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.

Overall fixed line penetration decreased from 2012 to 2018. The market is predicted to gradually decline over the next five years to 2023. Fixed line penetration is predicted to drop as mobile and mobile broadband penetration continue to increase.

Taiwan is implementing a strategy to leverage its strengths in cost-effective, advanced manufacturing to attain a significant share of the global IoT market. The government has included technological development of IoT-enabled devices under its “5+2” industrial development plan.

Key Developments:

  • Taiwan is implementing a strategy to attain a significant share of the global IoT market.
  • There is still limited competition in the local access market which is dominated by Chunghwa Telecom.
  • Fixed line penetration is predicted to gradually decline over the next five years to 2023.

Chunghwa Telecom, New Century Infocom, Taiwan Fixed Network Telecom, Asia Pacific Broadband Telecommunications
