CHT Global to Deliver Wireless Service in the U.S. on the Sprint Network

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 1, 2013) - CHT Global, the U.S. subsidiary of Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom (CHT), announces that it has signed on as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) of wireless carrier Sprint to provide mobile data service to enterprises and traveling business professionals. The MVNO will use Sprint's nationwide 3G & high-speed 4G LTE data networks to provide enterprises with wireless connectivity by offering mobile data hotspots on a true postpaid service plan.

Launching as CHT Global Mobility, the contract free service consists of a per device monthly access fee of $5.99 that includes 100Mb of data. Once a device's data usage exceeds 100Mb, usage will be charged per Mb as part of the enterprise's account pool with discounts awarded based upon volume thresholds reached. Enterprises have the option to purchase devices upfront in full, or through a 1 to 2 year financing plan. 

"Many of our customers don't have a good workforce mobile data solution or are paying in excess for data bundles their employees don't fully use," said Joe Yang, President and CEO of CHT Global. "We're proposing a new kind of offering where companies can flexibly and affordably provide each employee the ability to connect anytime and anywhere, while only paying for what is actually needed and used. This will help our customers keep in step with the trend and movement towards an always connected and mobile workforce."

"The Sprint Emerging & Wholesale Solutions team can help international carriers extend their brand into the U.S. to reach English and non-English speaking customers who may be coming to the U.S. for an extended period of time," said Karen Freitag, vice president - Emerging & Wholesale Solutions at Sprint. "We are pleased to have been selected to enable this offering from CHT Global and look forward to helping them deliver a successful service."
