PCCW to WiFi Hong Kong
PCCW enables Wi-Fi users to enjoy the same broadband experience they get in the home or office, with high-speed Internet access never more than a short walk away.
Users will be able to use bandwidth-hungry applications such as video streaming, video conferencing, online gaming and large-file transfer with virtually any of the growing number of Wi-Fi-enabled gadgets, such as laptops, PDAs, smartphones or handheld gaming devices. Provision of Wi-Fi devices is forecast to grow from 40 million shipped worldwide last year to 249 million in 2011, according to US-based ABI Research.
As well as establishing round-the-clock coverage at 1,000 7-Eleven and Circle K convenience stores in Hong Kong, PCCW Wi-Fi service has been extended to public estate shopping complexes managed by The Link Management Limited. The Link Management Limited Director (Portfolio Management) Lam Lit Kwan said: "With Wi-Fi service, we are enhancing the customer experience at our properties by offering quality, choice and innovation. As Wi-Fi popularity takes off, we will expand coverage to include even more shopping arcades."
PCCW Consumer Group Managing Director Tom Chan said: "Our enhanced PCCW Wi-Fi coverage will give our customers another platform to quickly and easily access the rich content provided by Netvigator, now TV and the internet."
