The Taiwan government will step up the development of WiMAX applications and help local operators expand coverage of their networks, according to Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA).
There are 584 WiMAX networks in 150 countries around the world and global WiMAX demand is still growing, IDB indicated.
Taiwan's WiMAX production value in 2011 is estimated at NT$48.7 billion (US$1.52 billion), with terminal devices reaching a global market share of 79%, IDB noted. In 2012, MOEA aims at WiMAX production value of NT$60 billion, IDB said.
