中文摘要 隨時間演進,行動通訊明顯為我們日常生活帶來許多效益,但隨著新先進的通訊系統被開發與應用,必須開始思考是否仍有其必要保留舊基礎設施,特別是已經建置二十餘年,普便於全球的2G(GSM)系統,而國家通訊傳播委員會(NCC)於2016年9月21號宣布2G系統將於今年六月終止並不再展延。有鑑於此,本研究先以總體環境(PEST)分析台灣、香港和韓國三者GSM廢止議題之差別,從中歸納出台灣不足地方與現況。再以中華電信為例,建構出實質選擇權分析模型,將GSM汰換視為一個完整之投資計畫,並以實質選擇權進行效益評估。在本研究模型中,假設中華電信在延遲、擴張、縮減三種不同決策權下,評估其進行2G用戶移轉計畫之可行性,並且透過分析結果檢視NCC之相關政策措施。
英文摘要 As time goes by, mobile communication has enriched our daily lives with all kinds of convenience. However, with the recent advances of cellular communication technologies and new mobile systems being deployed as 3G and LTE(4G), people wonder whether there still is a need for maintaining the legacy infrastructure, in particular the widely deployed 2G systems. The National Communications Commission(NCC)in Taiwan said that 2G telecommunications services are to be officially terminated in June 2017. In the light of this, this study applies the PEST analysis to distinguish the difference of 2G termination issue between Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea. After that, this study takes the Chunghwa Telecom as an example to a real option analysis model to evaluate its option values. In this research model, we assume that the Chunghwa Telecom could apply different kinds of real options, defer option, expand option and contract option to enhance its profitability. Moreover, the research result can assess the values of 2G migration project to analyze the NCC’s policies in GSM termination process.
The PEST analysis indicates, so far, the 2G license is under some technical limitations and without technological neutrality. Therefore, it lacks of incentive mechanism to promote GSM mobile operators to upgrade their systems, so the spectrum using is less efficiency and more rigid. Furthermore, the preparation period between announcement and termination for GSM is too short to implement, so it causes some pressure on both mobile operators and 2G subscribers. The real option analysis indicates, after analyzing the option to defer, Chunghwa Telecom(CHT)should carry out the migration project early. If the Chunghwa Telecom defers the migration project for a year, the total profits from the project will be reduced. Furthermore, the results also indicate that the NCC should announce the 2G termination earlier and encourage the MNOs to migrate their 2G user to 4G aggressively. For the option to expand, the subsidy policy involving the 2G termination process reduces a large number of operation costs of 2G for the CHT. However, this policy makes the CHT provide different kinds of telecom charges passively and hurts the rights and interests of 2G loyal customers. Under the option to contract, the CHT can reduce its 2G base stations for cutting down its operation cost and enhance the project’s profits. In addition, the mobile operators may return the spectrum to the NCC earlier for deploying advanced technology, when they confront the license expired sooner or later.
