Consistent with its status as one of the leading telecommunications economies in the world, Hong Kong has built itself world-class telecom infrastructure. Digitalised since 1995, the Special Administrative Region has been wired extensively with optical fibre cables, with the vast majority of households covered by this extensive broadband network. The rollout has been characterised by the utilisation of practically every type of technology. Hong Kong is naturally a key regional telecommunications hub and as such is the landing point for a significant number of strategically important submarine cables. Television is a substantial market in Hong Kong, with an estimated customer base of over 2.2 million households (99%). There are over 200 domestic, regional and international TV channels broadcasting in a range of languages, including free-to-air commercial channels, pay TV channels and a variety of FTA satellite channels. This report reviews the infrastructure established in Hong Kong, and developments in digital cable and satellite TV.
Paul, Many thanks for your inputs yesterday. You provided a compelling different perspective to our traditional infrastructure focus and this is valuable for our future planning. I also had very favourable feedback from our participants on your involvement.
Stephen Negus, Aurecon
