Taiwan’s Chunghwa Telecom saw its IPTV subscriptions grow some 73,000 in the quarter, spurred by Olympic coverage. Its MOD service now boasts 508,000 subscribers. Chunghwa also said Olympic coverage resulted in VODs that were 3.3 times higher, and Internet page views that were 11.3 times higher, than before the competition.
Hmmm. Guess content does matter.
Chunghwa also added 148,000 FTTB subscribers in the quarter, giving it a total about 800,000. It stated that 32.1 percent of its ADSL and FTTx subscribers have speeds greater than 8 Mbps.
