we need to upgrade our network bandwidth (the price decreases form NTD1,875 to NTD999 as the CHT promotion)
- 6 年前最佳解答
Due to/As the result of CHT promotion, business network bandwidth is upgraded ( in our company ) but the price goes down instead. ( The price is decreased by NTD$876 )
*Business mostly use business network instead of residential one, therefore, just call it business network bandwidth.
*You do not have to translate word by word from Chinese to English. By logic, if something is upgraded, it means higher price. Therefore, just use "but" and "instead".
*Your translation is different from what you meant in Chinese.
In Chinese, you did not specify that your company need to upgrade the network bandwidth.
Your English Translation,
**you have word order and logic issue in your translation
There is always not a "need" when there is a promotion. You upgrade something as a result of certain promotion, that is not a need but an opportunity. If you have said "We need to lower down/reduce our network bandwidth cost so that we take the promotion." ,then that is a need.
So you can say
"We upgraded our network bandwidth in our company (the price is decreased form NTD1,875 to NTD999 as the result of CHT promotion).
*As a result and As the result
use "the" if you want to emphasize the result of that promotion
use "a" if you are describing a general result of that promotion
Based on your Chinese sentence, you are emphasizing the reuslt of that promtoion, therefore, use as the result of.

the price is descreased "from"

Good job, Nathan,
However, to be more specific
Due to a/the recent promotion, CHT has offered/is offering to upgrade (our) broadband/braonetwork bandwidth without escalating prices/escalating the price/price escalation.
"I would prefer to use "has offered" or is offering here.

Nathan's answer is a bit ambiguous. It indicated that CHT upgraded all its network by providing broader band without a price increase. For example, Verizon "upgraded most of its own networks" from 3G to 4G and offered a free upgrade to all its customers.

as a result of : 用於多種結果之一
as the result of: 用於唯一且直接的結果.
有人指稱我句中的"as a result of"應改為"as the result of", 恕難苟同.
CHT的促銷案可產生各種結果, 不一而足, 例如市場行情下跌.用戶激增.市佔率改變....等等, 價格下降只是結果之一而非唯一, 故本句應使用as a result of才是正確的.參考資料： 羅莉 -- 文法+語意
