Taiwan - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses
Taiwan has developed a dynamic telecommunications industry defined by excellent telecom 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 has been in decline since 2012, and this trend is expected to continue in coming years as customers adopt mobile and mobile broadband solutions for voice and data services.
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.
