Taiwan mobile companies shrink from six to three in a bid to drive revenue growth

Taiwan's mobile sector has dramatically shrunk from six operators to just three in a very small space of time. While still subject to regulatory approval, the acquisition of Taiwan Star by Taiwan Mobile at the end of 2021 then closely followed by Far EasTone's merger with Asia Pacific Telecom in April 2022 will help strengthen the position of the minor players in their battle over the dominant Chunghwa Telecom.

The M&A strategies also reflect the state of Taiwan's mobile market, with near-saturation levels meaning minimal organic growth is possible. All the operators were quick to launch 4G then 5G networks and services in a bid to capture (or at least retain) a reasonable share of the market, but no company was able to sufficiently differentiate its offering in order to cause any significant shift in loyalties from Taiwan's tech-literate and astute customer base. The remaining operators may now be counting on a cooling of the heat on the pricing front, such that they can stall the decline in ARPU and recover some of the costs of their investment in the latest mobile platforms.
