PCCW extends free Wi-Fi to 158 public housing estates

25 May 2011

Hong Kong’s largest domestic telecoms provider PCCW is extending its free Wi-Fi broadband internet access services to 158 public rental housing estates across the territory, benefiting around two million residents. Since 2008, PCCW has been providing free Wi-Fi at 45 public housing estates, and from now onwards the service will be available at all such existing estates in Hong Kong. PCCW’s free wireless broadband hotspots are accessible in the recreation areas of the estates and some shopping centres via Wi-Fi enabled devices, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. PCCW is also prepared to install and operate more Wi-Fi hotspots at new housing estates in the future. The additional hotspots in the housing estates further widen PCCW’s territory-wide Wi-Fi network, which today has locally unparalleled coverage of around 9,000 hotspots, enabling internet access at convenience stores, coffee shops, shopping malls, key railway (MTR) stations, Airport Express stations and trains, Hong Kong airport, as well as PCCW payphone kiosks.
