Hong Kong - Telecommunications Infrastructure & Fixed Network Operators


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 with almost 400,000km of optical fibre, 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. This report reviews the infrastructure established in Hong Kong, and the key service providers.
