BMI View:

Taiwan's telecoms sector is highly competitive and, coupled with a tech-savvy population, haspropelled the uptake of advanced mobile and wireline services. However, three major operators commandclose to 90% of the mobile market, and we believe pressure for smaller operators to merge or be acquiredwill intensify in 2016 as unlimited mobile data plans are still the norm in Taiwan, and this strategy toencourage subscribers to increase data consumption will continue to eat into ARPU into the medium-term.



Latest Updates & Industry Developments


- Mobile subscriptions fell modestly in Q116. We forecast 30.720mn subscriptions by end-2016, rising to33.053mn in 2020. It will be 3G/4G migration that will drive growth, although some multi-SIMownership will persist.

- Chungwha and Taiwan Mobile have requested the government to continue supporting its subsidy forthe migration of 2G customers to 3G/4G services. The current 2G licenses are set to expire in June 2017.There were an estimated 710,000 2G customers in the market as of April 2016. The operators arerequesting that the Ministry of Economic Affairs' Industrial Development Bureau continue its support for consumers looking to trade their 2G handset for a 3G/4G compatible one. The operators are lookingto migrate all subscribers by 2017.
