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.
1O1O’s truly genuine 5G network now covers outdoor areas in Central, Sheung Wan, Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok, as well as inside Hong Kong International Airport and major shopping malls.
1O1O commands 3.3GHz, 3.5GHz and 4.9GHz 5G sections of the golden spectrum band, so we do not use the existing 4G band for 5G service. This means the quality of the overall 4G user experience will not be affected in the moment.
Customers simply need to use a 5G mobile device model compatible with 4.9GHz in order 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 to extend 5G coverage throughout Hong Kong and the areas along the MTR route in order to make the many wonders of this amazing new mobile broadband technology available to customers.
