28 Mar 2013

The National Communications Commission (NCC) has approved plans submitted by Chunghwa Telecom to lower the monthly circuit fees for its ADSL and fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure. According to the Taipei Times, the monthly circuit use charge and wholesale price will fall by an average of 3.24%. The NCC estimates that the reduced charges would benefit around 1.79 million ADSL and 2.68 million FTTH subscribers; altogether the users would be charged approximately TWD192 million (USD6.3 million) and TWD753 million less each year, respectively. For ADSL services, the biggest reduction will be for 8Mbps/640kbps downstream/upstream connections (TWD19, or 4.95%), while users of 100Mbps/20Mbps FTTH service users would see their monthly charge decrease by 15.86%, or TWD111.
