Underpinned by widely accessible, fast and affordable fixed and mobile broadband, Hong Kong has developed into a digital economy to improve socioeconomic 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.
