Analyst: Peter Evans


Established in 1992, SmarTone is the third largest mobile telephony provider in Hong Kong operating a dual-band GSM900/1800 network. It also provides fixed-line telephony and broadband Internet services over its fixed wireless LMDS network. The company listed on HKSE in 1996. In 1999, BT acquired a 20% stake. Operating in a highly competitive saturated market, the company is focussed on the high-value corporate data services market. The take-up of its fixed wireless broadband service was lower than expected and, in 2001, the company started cost cutting in this area. In 2001, the company acquired a 3G licence in Hong Kong and contracted Ericsson to build out the network.
