Taiwan - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Taiwan possesses an advanced fixed broadband market, with services accessible through a variety of technology platforms including DSL, fibre, Hybrid Fibre Coax (HFC), leased lines and wireless. Fibre is the most popular platform and has underpinned Taiwan's relatively high standing in global broadband rankings. Private investors are attracted to Taiwan due to its regulatory certainty, market maturity, an educated workforce and highly clustered ICT sector that sits at the heart of Taiwan's economic development.

Fibre broadband growth in Taiwan is largely due to the migration of ADSL subscribers to fibre broadband access, attracted to the higher speeds on offer. Growth in overall fibre broadband subscriptions are expected to be subdued.

Market penetration in the fixed broadband subscriber market has remained flat over the past five years due to a declining number of fixed lines and the growing dominance of mobile broadband. Over the next five years to 2023 very slow growth is predicted.

Taiwan has taken steps to develop a digital economy, encompassing digital media and e-services and building upon the high availability of fixed and mobile broadband networks. Private sector involvement is particularly strong in digital media, with digital media content widely accessible via HFC and IPTV networks.
