Taiwan Fixed-Line Subscribers Peaked in 2005, Says BuddeComm in Its Report Available at MarketPublishers.com04 Oct 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Taiwan can boast a dynamic telecom industry with excellent infrastructure. Its mobile market is extremely competitive. Chunghwa Telecom remains the number one player in the country’s fixed-line marketplace.
Fixed broadband becomes increasingly popular given ongoing transition from DSL to fiber access-based platforms.
Ten players serve the Taiwanese telecom industry, namely 6 mobile operators and 4 fixed-line operators.
One of the most advanced broadband networks as well as broadcasting infrastructure is in Taiwan.
There was significant investment in developing standards like WiMAX in the country due to intention of the government and private investors to improve its position in the ICT value chain.
Taiwanese fixed-line subscribers grew gradually in their number and reached a peak in 2005. This trend has been declining since then given gradual substitution of fixed lines with mobile phones. For instance, the fixed line penetration stood at slightly under 55% in 2011 and it decreased to approximately 50% in 2016.
The mobile subscriber has growth at a single-digit rate over the period 2011-2014, while the market penetration reached its peak in 2014.
The marketplace faced a slight contraction in 2015 given the fact that it was highly mature and saturated.
