Taiwan outlines proposed retail, wholesale tariff adjustments on telco services

Local regulators issue draft notice after series of public consultations

The National Communications Commission (NCC) of Taiwan has issued a draft notice regarding proposed adjustments to tariffs for the wholesale fixed broadband markets.

In its press release, the NCC said it is proposing that monthly rental fees for broadband Internet circuits in the fixed communications network broadband retail service market should be reduced by "3.32% minus the annual growth rate of the consumer price index" for those with a significant market position.

However, the regulator clarified that this does not include ADSL-based services with downlink speeds below 12Mbps and above 300Mbps.

Meanwhile, for the wholesale service market, the NCC suggested a tariff reduction of “5.09% minus the annual growth rate of the Consumer Price Index", but circuits below 2Mbps are not included.

The NCC added that other major tariff items include monthly voice service fees and communication fees in the voice retail service market, and local network and long-distance network in the broadband retail service market.
