TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwan Star Cellular Co. yesterday launched the company’s 4G mobile broadband network while unveiling competitively priced subscription contract terms in vying for the crowded local telecoms market. The company yesterday announced that unlimited usage plans for its 4G LTE network will be available for NT$599 monthly under two-year contracts. The company emphasized that subscribers under its two-year contracts will have fully unlimited 4G usage, and that no connection speed throttling will be imposed regardless of bandwidth consumption.
Taiwan Star Cellular (台灣之星) yesterday rolled out a 31-day 4G free trial program, allowing users to test the company’s 4G service before it is formally launched at the end of next month. With yesterday’s announcement, Taiwan Star Cellular became the fourth telecommunication company in Taiwan to provide 4G service. There is no cap limit on data usage during the free trial, and a new registration is all that is required to try the service, the longest 4G trial program in Taiwan.
