Thuraya granted Taiwan licence

Chunghwa Telecom’s subscribers in Taiwan can now use Thuraya’s voice, data and maritime services, the Dubai-based satcoms provider has announced.

The NCC, Taiwan’s national telecoms regulator, has granted approval, licensing Thuraya to provide its mobile satellite services in the region.

The licensing agreement means that individual consumers and corporate users will no longer need to apply for individual approval from the NCC to use mobile satellite services in Taiwan. Previously, only enterprise users were eligible to do so.

“We are grateful to the NCC for granting licensing approval of Thuraya’s satellite services, which will enable Taiwan’s citizens to stay connected across our global network on land and sea, beyond the confines of terrestrial networks,” says Thuraya’s CEO Samer Halawi.

Thuraya, whose products include the SF2500 and the Seagull 5000, says that it sees strong demand for voice and data services from the Taiwanese fisheries sector.
