Taiwan Mobile the nation’s No. 2 telecoms operator has said it plans to spend NT$5 billion (US$170 million) building “green” cloud-computing facilities in Neihu District, Taipei. The phone company is scheduled to complete the construction of the facilities in the first quarter of next year, according to a company statement.

The company said it is building a ninth one for NT$6 billion in Neihu District this year.
