Taiwan's State-Owned Companies to Abandon 3G Cellular Phone Business
Posted: 10-Aug-2001 [Source: Commercial Times]

[Five licenses to be released by end of year opening bidding to local and foreign competition.]

Taipei -- "Under pressure from legislators and mounting profit worries due to stiff competition, major local state-owned companies with available 3G-related hardware capacities have announced they will abandon their long-designed 3G business investment plans.

"The Directorate General of Telecommunications (DGT) of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) plans to release five third-generation (3G) licenses by the end of the year after launching a bidding process, and it expects that will leave a lot of room for both local and foreign competitors to enter the businesses.

"Local large-scale, state-owned companies, including Chinese Petroleum Corp. (CPC), Taiwan Sugar Corp. and Taiwan Power Corp., which all are equipped with the capacity to establish 3G hardware ability, have been revealing since earlier this year that they are preparing to compete for Taiwan's 3G license and 3G system equipment business opportunities.
