China Mobile Inks MOU with Taiwan's Far EasTone

China Mobile signed a memorandum of understanding with Far EasTone, Taiwan's third largest mobile operator. The carriers agreed to collaborate on the testing of 4G networks in Taiwan. Specifically, the testing will focus on TD-LTE, the technology being adopted by China Mobile.

  • Last year, China Mobile sought to acquire a 12% stake in Far Eastone, but the plans were held up by the government of Taiwan, which has barred mainland Chinese investment in local telecom operators.
