Asia Pacific Telecom, the only CDMA 2000 mobile telecom carrier in Taiwan, has been focusing on the transition from voice communications to data communications since it launched 1x EV-DO services in October 2012, according to the company.

 

Mainly because of the transition, Asia Pacific saw January-February revenues drop 17-18% on year, the company noted.

 

Asia Pacific said it aims to increase its number of subscribers from 2.8 million currently to three million by the end of 2013, with mobile Internet-access subscribers from 400,000 to 800,000.

 

Asia Pacific plans to procure 0.8-1.0 million handsets for contract-bundled sale in 2013, 60-70% of which will be smartphones, the company indicated.

 

Asia Pacific said it will file an application for listing on the Taiwan Stock Exchange at the end of March.
