The 5G era will transform the mobile network from a communications medium into a complex technology ecosystem that will serve virtually every aspect of everyday life.
HKT has acquired spectrum in the 3.3GHz, 3.5GHz, 4.9GHz and 26/28GHz frequency bands, a capability that will combine with our extensive infrastructure to get the very best out of 5G technology – all to the benefit of our customers.
Our truly genuine 5G network now covers 90% of outdoor areas% in Hong Kong, as well as 99.5%# of the Golden Bowl and main business district. Our 5G network also covers the interiors of Hong Kong International Airport and major shopping malls.
We are the first mobile operator to provide seamless 5G coverage along six major MTR lines*, which means passengers are able to enjoy ultra-fast 5G service on concourses and platforms at more than 50 stations, as well as onboard trains. 1O1O will continue extending 5G overage throughout the rest of the MTR network including West Rail Line, Tung Chung Line, Airport Express Line, South Island Line, Disney Line and High Speed Rail by the end of 2020.
Customers simply need to use a 5G mobile device compatible with 4.9GHz to reap the extraordinary speed and other benefits of 1O1O’s 5G network at locations such as the Hong Kong Science Park and certain areas of Tai Po and Ma On Shan.
1O1O will continue extending 5G coverage throughout Hong Kong, in step with launch of new 5G smartphones this year, while making the many wonders of this amazing new mobile broadband technology readily available to customers.
