Speedtest Taiwan 5G report is released for the first time! FET 5G performance fully ahead of Taiwan's Internet speed and advances to the world's 16th place!

(中央社訊息服務20210218 09:25:04)FarEasTone beats Taiwan’s other mobile operators in download and upload speeds and latency, making the company the clear 5G speed champion of a recent test conducted by the authoritative Speedtest.net by Ookla.

According to Speedtest.net’s first ever report on Taiwan’s 5G service, FarEasTone’s download speed of 315.45Mbps is the best of the field, helping to improve Taiwan’s overall broadband performance. The company has set a goal of 90% coverage by the end of 2021, allowing all of its customers to enjoy the fastest internet connection in Taiwan and also one of the fastest in the world!

According to the report, Taiwan’s mobile speed has continued to improve. With the deployment of 5th-generation (5G) broadband cellular networks spurring the growth, Taiwan’s mean download speed over mobile on 3G, 4G as well as 5G technologies increased by 30.4% from 2019 to 2020, elevating Taiwan’s ranking in the Speedtest Global Index to 16th, said the report.

In addition, by the 4th quarter of 2020, Taiwan’s median download speed on 5G reached 260.01Mbps, 522% faster than on 4G.

FarEasTone has always made advance deployment a priority in its network development efforts. During the times of 4G technology, the company introduced a system dubbed Customer Experience Management, which, with the help of AI big data analysis, maximizes the use of bandwidth by allocating resources based on connections at different times of the day, days of the week and the use of different applications.

For example, the system used artificial intelligence to analyze the use of internet at science parks during the day, high-density residential areas at night and popular scenic spots on holidays and weekends and planned network development accordingly.

Since 5G was launched, analysis of big data with AI has been used to help select the sites for base stations. In addition, FarEasTone has developed its own 5G station automatic platform, which means that, the switching between 4G and 5G is optimized at every single 5G base station that is built.

It is with this kind of thoughtful development of quality network that FarEasTone has become a 5G speed champion, certified by both Speedtest.net and Opensignal.

Advances in 5G has boosted mobile speeds in Taiwan, improving the country’s place in the global speed ranking by 13 notches, up to 16th from 29th in January 2019, according to Speedtest.net’s report.

The report also released for the first time the download speeds of Taiwan’s metropolitan areas, which is close to the median 5G download speed around the island -- 260.01Mbps. The test showed a download speed of 265.01 Mbps for Taoyuan, 261.79 Mbps for Taipei, 260.20 Mbps for Taichung, 241.72 Mbps for Tainan and 236.69 Mbps for New Taipei.

Early on, FarEasTone focused its deployment of 5G network in Taiwan’s major population centers such as the six metropolitan areas (the five mentioned above and Kaohsiung City) and around 100 main commercial districts, gradually expanding to residential areas, business quarters, scenic spots and public transport systems. It is expected that the company’s service will be available to 90% of Taiwan’s population by the end of 2021.

The endorsement by authoritative international institutions of FarEasTone’s leading position as a mobile operator in Taiwan goes to show that the company’s promise of thoughtful 5G development and service and pleasant user experience is not a mere slogan but a commitment that is being carried in earnest. FarEasTone pledges to continue to put its heart into 5G development so that its customers can enjoy a world-class quality network and experience the fun of innovative services that 5G could bring.
