SAMSUNG Electronics Wins Big Order for 1.16 million ADSL Lines in Taiwan

SEOUL, Korea - Feb 8 2002 - On February 6, Samsung Electronics won the right to supply ADSL networks with a 1.16 million-subscriber capacity to Chunghwa Telecom. Taiwan's largest telecommunications operator opened a large-scale international tender, with bidding to cover the whole area of Taiwan.

This, the first ADSL tender open to international bidders this year, drew such big name players as Samsung Electronics, Alcatel, Lucent Technologies, Nokia and NEC.

Samsung was chosen as the top contender, testimony to the company's excellent technology in high-speed telecommunications networks. Samsung's strong showing in the Taiwanese tender bodes well for the company's telecommunication system exports this year.

A Chunghwa Telecom official said, "Samsung Electronics received high marks for having broadband access network technology, being the frontrunner in the Korean market, and exhibiting the know-how to install and operate telecommunications networks."

Changsup Shim, VP and General Manager of Broadband Business Unit of Samsung Electronics, said, "We are building upon the success which has achieved in Taiwan. Now, vast resources are being focused on the high-speed internet business, with primary emphasis on xDSL."

Samsung will supply and install the ADSL systems and incidental equipment required to serve 1.16 million subscribers. The company is also in a favorable position to win follow-up orders for future expansion projects.
