The last 18 months brought enormous and unexpected change across the globe, and across our telecommunications networks. COVID-19 has heavily increased the demand for connectivity, as the world embraced a more digital way of life. From a carrier perspective, the first months of COVID-19 saw records being broken across the world’s networks. Data demands were spiking, driven by population-wide moves to remote working, use of on-demand video, and digital and cloud acceleration. Furthermore, we have seen a number of environmental and regulatory trends fundamentally alter the industry landscape in Asia.
Taiwan is emerging as a new Asian hub of connectivity. Telstra as the only foreign telecommunications provider in Taiwan offers a full suite of solutions cater to the enterprise, wholesale, tech and cloud segments. Through our combined offering of terrestrial and subsea connectivity, we try to ensure maximum services uptime against potential outages caused by earthquakes.
