China : CHT plans to contribute 600,000 subscribers to its over 100 Mbps DEALS

July 7, 2014

Taiwanese mobile operator Chunghwa Telecom (CHT) is projecting to contribute 600,000 subscribers to its over 100 Mbps deals this year, with 35 percent on FTTH.

CHT is seeking to formulate fixed-line broadband services to support download speeds of 100 Mbps and above, faced with competition from 4G services.

The operator's fixed-line broadband network includes 85 percent of Taiwan's population at the end of 2013 and currently exceeds 90%.

Lately, CHT has introduced 4G mobile services on a 1800MHz band, and it projects to set aside a 900MHz band for 4G in the second half of next year. The two bands would be amalgamated for a continuous bandwidth of 20 MHz through carrier aggregation technology, raisng download speeds to 140Mbps and uploads to 40 Mbps.
