Tatung InfoComm, one of the six WiMAX licensees in Taiwan, aims to solicit up to one million WiMAX subscribers in five years. The company will officially launch its commercial WiMAX service later this month starting in Penghu, a group of small islands west of Taiwan, according to company chairman WS Lin.
Tatung will also continue to increase its investment in related WiMAX infrastructure with capex likely to exceed NT$5 billion (US$147.5 million) over the next three years, Lin noted.
In addition to commercial WiMAX services in the Penghu islands, Tatung on April 21 also started official operation of a WiMAX network built on the campus of Tatung University, an affiliate of the Tatung Group. Tatung's WiMAX equipment partner Alcatel-Lucent helped set up the WiMAX network, the first to be established on a Taiwan campus.
