29 Jul 2014

Some 300,000 subscribers in Taiwan have signed up for a 4G tariff since such services were first introduced in late-May 2014, the China Post reports. With Chunghwa Telecom (CHT), Far EasTone (FET) and Taiwan Mobile now having all inaugurated LTE networks, it is understood that each operator has pulled in around 100,000 4G customers apiece. For its part, the wireless sector’s leading cellco by total subscribers, CHT, was said to have confirmed last week that its 4G customer base had surpassed 100,000. Looking ahead the operator is aiming to have increased that figure to 600,000 by the end of this year, and is aiming for a 40% market share. FET meanwhile has also seen its LTE subscriber base surpass 100,000, with uptake said to have picked up this month as its network footprint became more widely available; the cellco aims to have upped its customer numbers to 500,000 by end-2014. Rounding out those operators to have launched thus far, Taiwan Mobile, which also aims to amass around half a million 4G subscribers by the end of the year, has attracted around 100,000 to its LTE-based offerings since launching in early-June 2014.
