Chunghwa Telecom Vows to Boost Sales of Non-voice Services

In light of growing demand for mobile online connections, Chunghwa Telecom Co., Ltd. vows to increase sales of non-voice services to account for 55% of the company`s revenue in five years, up from current 40%.

To this end, Taiwan`s No.1 telecom carrier will invest more in the next few years to add cellular, optical-fiber and cloud networks, with capital expenditure set at NT$32 billion (US$32 billion US$1.1 billion at US$1:NT$29) or so for this year and around NT$40 billion (US$1.3 billion) for 2013.

Also, it will develop strong presences at home and overseas. At home, the company will increase the number of its retail shops around the island by 20 in 2011 and 100 each in 2012 and 2013. Overseas, the company will step up operations in mainland China and Vietnam, where it has opened branches.

The carrier will launch an integrated cloud-computing platform, which will keep mobile phones, tablet computers and TVs synchronized wirelessly.

Industry executives estimated the new roadmap would help send the company`s revenue rising to NT$220 billion (US$7.5 billion) in five years.

The company expects its sales of value-added services, including non-voice services, to increase at annual rate of 10% this year.
