"iPass and Chunghwa are breaking new ground with Asia's first regional flat-rate pricing offering," said Chee Leng Loy, managing director, Asia, iPass. "Chunghwa customers can now take full advantage of the availability of wireless and wired broadband, without the risk of increasing their connectivity costs. A flat-rate mobility service allows organizations to properly plan for and support their mobile workforce, allowing for increased cost predictability."
The jointly developed service will allow Chunghwa Telecom's user base to benefit from predictable mobility costs and consistent, reliable connectivity when traveling across Asia.
Following in-depth research by the Tourism Bureau of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications in Taiwan, it was revealed that trips to pan-Asia account for over 83 percent of total travel traffic. In response to this, iPass and Chunghwa Telecom took the initiative to develop a predictable monthly flat-rate pricing that allows subscribers to avoid an unpredictable increase in remote access expenses as wireless broadband adoption grows.
The new Chunghwa Enterprise flat-rate pricing plan offers business professionals an integrated service with unlimited redundant dial-up and nearly 23,000 Wi-Fi hotspot locations across the region, which includes areas like Australia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Fiji Islands, Guam, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, N. Mariana Island/Saipan, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
