    Taiwan broadband penetration reaches 35%

    One in every three households in Taiwan has a broadband Internet
    connection, according to an estimate from the Taiwan-based Market
    Intelligence Center (MIC).

    A total of 2.45 million households have signed up for broadband
    Internet service as of the end of the first half of this year,
    representing 35.5% of 6.9 million households in Taiwan. XDSL is the
    most preferred choice, with 2.2 million households. Cable modem
    connections totaled 250,000 households, MIC added.

    On the other hand, about 120,000 subscribers discontinued 56K modem
    connections during the second quarter of this year, ending the first
    half with 4.68 million dial-up Internet subscribers.

    Taiwan’s total population is over 23 million. The research center
    expects that broadband penetration in Taiwan will reach 40% by
    year-end.

    If Taiwan is like Korea, then the regulatory environment has mandated cheap,
    ubiquitous broadband.

    "Although the report identifies several factors that have led to
    near-universal broadband adoption in South Korea, including the nation's
    geography, where a few, dense cities have most of the population, the "take
    home" lesson comes from South Korea's regulator, which supported
    competition while also subsidizing broadband buildouts. The report notes,
    "the Bell companies say they have no incentive to invest capital in
    broadband networks they would have to share. The [U.S.] government could
    overcome this objection by supporting the cost of further infrastructure
    investments, while requiring sharing of networks."


    In Korea, the government telco has got broadband to about 85%
    penetration....to the point where ISDN is being withdrawn as a service. The
    only country in the Asia Pacific region to withdraw it.

    and 75% of them are compromised and sending spam/launching DDOS every second
    of every day.
