Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom: 61% of Broadband Lines Now on FTTx

Taiwan-based Chunghwa Telecom reported Q1 2013 net revenue of NT$56.63 billion (US$1.92 billio), up 2.1% compared to last year.  This total was comprised of 49.3% mobile, 10.6% internet, 31.9% domestic fixed, 6.7% international fixed, and the remainder was from other businesses.

Some highlights for Q1 2013:

  • As of March 31st, the number of FTTx subscribers reached 2.79 million, accounting for 61.2% of total broadband users. Moreover, the number of subscribers signing up for 50Mbps and higher speed connections increased by 81.9%, reaching 964,000.  
  • Broadband access revenue, including ADSL and Fiber connections (FTTx), increased by 2.0% to NT$4.83 billion, demonstrating continued success in migrating subscribers to higher speed fiber services.
  • Total revenue for the mobile business increased to NT$27.90 billion for the first quarter 2013, representing 9.1% growth. The increase was primarily due to growth in mobile VAS revenue and handset sales from smartphone promotions.  This increase offset a decline in mobile voice revenue due to promotional packages and the National Communication Committee mandated tariff reductions.

  • Chunghwa's internet business revenue decreased by 2.7% to NT$6.02 billion in the first quarter of 2013.  The decrease was primarily attributable to lower ICT project revenue which offset the increase in HiNet ISP revenue and internet VAS revenue.
  • Domestic fixed revenue totaled NT$18.05 billion, representing a 5.9% decrease. Local service revenue decreased by 7.6% mainly due to mobile and VoIP substitution. Moreover, the 15.2% revenue decline in the DLD business was primarily due to tariff reduction which began in January 2012 and was reflected one month later in the February 2012 financials, resulting in a higher year over year comparison basis.
  • Broadband access revenue, including ADSL and Fiber connections (FTTx), increased by 2.0% to NT$4.83 billion, demonstrating continued success in migrating subscribers to higher speed fiber services.
  • International fixed revenue increased by 4.8% to NT$3.82 billion, mainly due to higher international long distance service and leased line revenue.
  • Total CAPEX for the first quarter of 2013 increased by 12.6% to NT$7.53 billion. Total capex was comprised of: 54.6% domestic fixed communications, 26.3% mobile, 15.7% internet, 1.9% international fixed communications, and the remainder was for other uses.

Taiwan's Chunghwa Forecast Lower Revenue in 2013


Citing the likelihood of less construction revenue from its property development subsidiary, a continued decline in voice revenue, mandated tariff reductions as well as the mobile interconnection rate reduction imposed by Taiwan's regulatory authority, Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom expects its overall revenue for 2013 to fall by NT$2.46 billion, or 1.1%, to NT$217.82 billion compared to the unaudited consolidated revenue for 2012. Electricity rates for the year are also forecast to rise.

Growth areas offsetting some of these negative factors include mobile internet, Fiber broadband and ICT including cloud services.

Capex for 2013 is budgeted to increase by NT$3.89 billion from 2012, to NT$37.15 billion, primarily related to the fiber broadband, mobile network, and cloud infrastructure build-outs.
