In this research, the top six determinants of evaluation, as shown in Table 2, were selected as objectives of developing the digital convergence policy of Taiwan, they are: (1)C11 Promoting telecommunication mobile value-added services; (2) C12expediting the digitization of cable and terrestrial TV; (3) C21promoting investment and development of the convergence industry; (4) C13adjusting the scope of regulating telecommunications and broadcasting; (5) C31completing the digital convergence legislative framework and passing relevant legislation; and (6) C22 reducing the digital divide and popularizing services."For this research, opinions and comments from experts and scholars were compiled with the objective of establishing the most effective research structure and means of evaluation. Subsequently, results show that the top criteria expedite Taiwan's digital convergence is the development of high-speed broadband network infrastructure. Besides, Taiwan presently does not perform well in Harmonic Convergence Regulatory Environment. It also means that there is not a sound regulatory environment, particularly in "balance digital divide and universal service". Thus, Taiwan should first improve "Harmonic Convergence Regulatory Environment".
