Thuraya Telecommunications recently achieved a new historic first in the Taiwanese market. Together with partner Chunghwa Telecom, it has secured licensing approval from the country's national telecoms regulator. The two telecom companies can now deliver Thuraya's mobile satellite services to customers in Taiwan.
Licensing approval for Mobile Satellite Services had originally been limited to enterprise users. Thuraya's recently-acquired licensing agreement will allow Taiwanese consumers to access mobile satellite services without applying for individual licensing approval at the NCC
Thanks to the new licensing agreement, Thuraya can now deliver voice, data, and maritime services to subscribers of Chunghwa Telecom. Its Taiwanese customers will be able to access its services in 140 countries in Africa, Asia Pacific, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, and the surrounding regions.
Thuraya considers Taiwan to be an important market for growth. The Taiwanese fisheries sector drives a significant demand for voice and data services that are both cost-effective and reliable.
