Chunghwa plans cheaper broadband

10 Mar 2008

Taiwan’s dominant phone operator, Chunghwa Telecom, has unveiled plans to lower its broadband internet tariffs in response to an order from the country’s telecoms regulator, the National Communications Commission (NCC). Chunghwa says the size of the price reductions will depend on the level of service taken, though an ADSL package with peak download speeds of 8Mbps, which currently costs TWD1,115 (USD37.08) including circuit lease fees and network fees, will cost closer to TWD900 from the start of April when the new charges come into effect. DigiTimes reports that the cost of a 10Mbps high speed fibre connection is expected to fall from around TWD1,300 currently to between TWD1,000 and TWD1,100.
