Taiwan’s advanced fixed broadband market is served by 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 has largely been due to the migration of DSL subscribers to fibre access, a platform made attractive because of the higher speeds on offer. Growth in the fibre sector is likely to continue to be strong in coming years though more subdued than formally, given that most DSL subscribers have already migrated away from copper.
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 relatively slow growth is predicted. One break on fixed broadband growth will come from 5G, with the launch of commercial services later in 2020 expected to result in a number of fixed broadband subscribers moving to 5G for data services.
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.
