Taipei Times, citing a decision made by the National Communications Commission (NCC), reports that TWM Solution (formerly Taiwan Fixed Network) has been fined TWD900,000 (USD31,000) for the illegal expansion and use of its network. A spokesperson for the regulator said that the telco did file an application before the expansion, and that the company has been ordered to remedy the situation by 30 September. The operator also received a TWD300,000 fine in May 2010 after it added new equipment without seeking regulatory approval.
