Asia Pacific Telecom Co. (亞太電信), one of the major telecom service providers in
Taiwan, has copped a fine of NT$1 million (US$33,003) for the poor quality of its 3G service, the National Communications Commission (NCC) said Wednesday.
NCC spokesman Wong Po-tsung (翁柏宗) said Asia Pacific Telecom shut down some of its 3G Code Division Multiple Access (3G CDMA) base stations without notifying its subscribers and that the closures had resulted in poor signal transmission.
The NT$1 million fine against Asia Pacific Telecom is the first penalty imposed in Taiwan for such a violation, according to the NCC. [FULL STORY]
