PCCW applauds end of Type II interconnection

8 Jul 2004

The Hong Kong telecoms regulator Ofta has announced that from July 2008 PCCW will no longer be obliged to lease its networks to competitors under the so-called ‘Type II’ interconnection agreements. PCCW has welcomed the announcement, having argued in a 100-page submission to the regulator that local loop unbundling was a deprivation of its property rights under Article 105 of the Basic Law.
