Search Inside

The extensive roll-out of fixed broadband infrastructure has allowed Hong Kong to provide almost all households with access to high-speed broadband connectivity. Deployments by competing operators have resulted in strong competition, driving rapid growth in broadband subscriptions to levels approaching saturation. Not surprisingly investment has focused on fibre access networks due to inherent advantage of fibre access networks over competing platforms such as DSL or HFC, especially in the geographically compact territory of Hong Kong.

WiFi has come into renewed focus in Hong Kong as a means to alleviate the impact of smartphones on 3G/4G network performance during peak usage periods. Hong Kong's government has also deployed WiFi as part of initiatives to improve accessibility to digital economy services.

This report provides an overview of the fixed broadband market in Hong Kong and provides extensive broadband statistics of the major players including ARPU. Statistics are also provided for Hong Kong's internet market. Broadband forecasts are provided to 2020.

Underpinned by widely accessible, fast and affordable fixed and mobile broadband, Hong Kong has developed into a digital economy to improve socio-economic development. Technology has been utilised to improve the quality, accessibility and affordability of commerce, government services, healthcare, education and utilities.

One of the earliest and biggest adopters of technology has been Hong Kong's digital media industry. Starting with terrestrial and cable networks, access to digital media is now possible through fixed and mobile broadband networks. Increasing disaggregation between content providers and distributors has allowed OTT video and music providers, both legal and illegal, to flourish in Hong Kong.
