Taiwan Telecommunications: Report Q3 2014

BMI View: The Taiwanese telecom market is among the most mature in the region, with 126.8% mobilepenetration in 2013 and 84.7% of the market is postpaid. Taiwanese mobile market looks to an excitingyear ahead in 2014 as six operators have obtained their 4G licences and are expected to introduce 4Gservices by end-2014. However, operators face short-term ARPU squeeze from the regulators who haveimposed compulsory cuts to mobile termination rates and requirements to provide free peering between2013 to 2016. That said, the migration towards 4G market should open up new data-driven revenue sourcesfor operators such as mobile payment, mobile commerce and cloud computing services.

Key Data

The latest data from mobile operators and the regulator, the NCC, show total subscriptionsreached29.170mn at Q114, up by 1.5% year-on-year (y-o-y). This reflects the slowing subscriptiongrowth as the mobile penetration rate increases.

Although overall subscription growth has slowed, there has been a transformation of the market in recentyears as 3G subscriptions increased rapidly, up 10.0% y-o-y to 25.432mn at Q114.

The fixed-line sector falters - the latest data from regulator the NCC indicate that it declined by 1.3% y-oyin Q114, falling to a total 12.18mn subscriptions.
