Chunghwa to launch G.fast in September

8 Jun 2015

Taiwan’s largest internet service provider (ISP) by subscribers, Chunghwa Telecom, is set to launch G.fast broadband services with downlink speeds of up to 300Mbps in September 2015, DigiTimes writes, citing a statement from the state-backed firm. The operator has been testing the DSL technology with a view to increasing the throughput of its copper-based access network to more closely match the capabilities of its FTTx network, thereby increasing the availability of 300Mbps broadband. Chunghwa’s tests have yielded peak data transfer rates of 500Mbps-1Gbps within 100m of the node, the operator noted.
