24 Oct 2014

Taiwanese operators have signed up a total of 1.7 million 4G subscribers since services were first launched in the country back in May 2014. According to the Digitimes, which cites figures produced by the National Communications Commission (NCC), the nation’s mobile network operators have applied so far to set up some 12,300 LTE-enabled base stations, and with the regulator having approved the plans for 10,300 of those, around 4,920 are already in operation.

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, Chunghwa Telecom was the first to market, inaugurating its 4G network in May 2014, while Far EasTone and Taiwan Mobile Company launched competing commercial services just a few days later in early June 2014.
