TAIPEI: In a move that has telecom operators excited, Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC) has set a tentative timeline for the issue of 4G licenses.
“This is very exciting news and we are all really hopeful to get the faster broadband services in this country and we should have had it months ago,” retail manager Xi Lang told Bikyamasr.com after hearing the news.
“I hope, for my own business that the new 4G will mean more hi-tech new gadgets will be bought,” he added.
The regulator will announce draft rates for spectrum and regulations by the end of this year.
Following that announcement, the NCC will then hold public hearings to receive feedback and will then work on revisions of the drafts in March 2013, The Digitimes reports.
In June, the NCC will seek applications for 4G licences and complete examinations of the applications by September. Licensees are expected to be announced at the end of November 2013.
