Chunghwa launches 4G service in Taiwan

30 May 2014 |


Chunghwa Telecom has announced the launch of 4G broadband services in Taiwan, one month earlier than its expected launch date of July.

The company claims it is the first to launch 4G services in the country, following the allocation of 4G licences by Taiwanese regulators earlier this month.

A spokesperson for the company said that the launch places Chunghwa as more than just a telecoms company and it hopes to advance its service offering in the coming months.

Chunghwa’s existing portfolio of services includes voice and high-speed internet and the company plans to extend this to include value-added services such as high-definition video, high-quality video, 3D navigation and cloud gaming.

Other winners of the 4G licences include Far EasTone and Taiwan Mobile, which have partnered with Ericsson and NSN respectively for their 4G roll-outs.
