The Australian bank acquiring Taiwan Broadband Communications plans to expand TBC's range of services for Internet and cable television subscribers.

Macquarie Media Group's managing director, Alex Harvey, told the Melbourne Herald Sun that Taiwan appeared to be a promising market for digital television and bundled voice and broadband service.
