Taiwanese carrier Taiwan Star Telecom said that its 5G subscribers already represent 5% of the company’s overall mobile base and that it will step up its efforts to push the ratio to 10% in 2021.
Taiwan Star has attracted a total of 100,000 5G users since it began offering 5G commercial services in August.
The operator previously said that it aimed to reach a coverage of 80% with its 5G networks in Taiwan’s major metropolitan areas by the end of 2020. Taiwan Star also said it expect to expand its 5G network coverage to other cities, counties and the suburbs of these major metropolitan areas by 2023.
Taiwan Star had secured 40 megahertz in the 3.5 GHz band in a previous spectrum auction.
