U-Ming Marine Transport Corp. (2606) chairman Douglas Hsu indicated Monday that after Ambit Microsystems takes a stake in Asia Pacific Telecom (3682), Far EasTone’s A2 frequency band will fall between Asia Pacific and Ambit. A mutual collaboration will create a bandwidth of 30MHz for even greater mutual benefit.

The market’s interpretation is that Hsu believes a partnership between Hon Hai (2317) and Far EasTone resulting in a 30MHz bandwidth will be more effective thatn a partnership between Hon Hai and Taiwan Mobile. Currently in the 700MHz frequency band, Asia Pacific has obtained the A1 frequency band, Far EasTone the A2 frequency band, Ambit A3, and Taiwan Mobile A4.

Hsu recognized three areas of collaboration, exchanging frequency bands with Ambit, purchasing frequency spectrum, and sharing base stations. He does not rule out initiating the partnership plan in the latter part of the year.

In terms of the service trade agreement coming to a halt, Hsu stated that service-trade must pass. “T. The entire world is connected. Basically, it is impossible for any one country to isolate itself and avoid connection and competition with the outside world. Chinese and American products can be bought in Taiwan, of course we hope they will be able to buy Taiwanese goods. Everyone’s ideals should be more liberal. We should be more open-minded,” Hsu said. He also emphasized, “These words are not suggestions for the government, they are for every citizen.”
