PCCW Introduces ! Gig FTTH Services

PCCW, the incumbent telco in Hong Kong, now offers the PCCW 1000M+ gigabit Ethernet FTTH service two two thirds of Hong Kong's households. It also offers the 100M 100 Mbps Ethernet FTTH service. It stated that it plans to offer a 1.25 Gbps service some time in 2008.

The 100M service is priced at $US75 per month and the 1000M+ service is priced at $280 per month.

PCCW is stepping up the level of broadband competition in Hong Kong. These FTTH are premium services but are well priced for technology based small and home businesses.

PCCW's new offerings now compete directly with City Telecom's Hong Kong Broadband FTTH services in Hong Kong. This will put pricing pressure on City Telecom in order to maintain an advantage in this market.
