Taiwan’s telecoms regulator has published details of its plans for WiMAX wireless broadband licensing. The National Communications Commission (NCC) says it will offer nine six-year WiMAX concessions in the second quarter of next year. DigiTimes reports that three 90MHz bands will be available in each of three regions: northern, central and southern Taiwan. Companies can apply for several licences but will be awarded a maximum of one, although mergers and co-operation with other licence winners will be allowed to enable operators to create a national footprint. Networks must be built out within one year of licensing.
