3 Hong Kong's 4G LTE service set to achieve full MTR coverage in December
4G/3G service will cover MTR's network expansion lines as they go live
 
Hong Kong, 9 November 2013– 3 Hong Kong, the mobile arm of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings Limited (HTHKH, stock code: 215), today announced that expansion of its 4G LTE coverage - to include the MTR’s East Rail, West Rail, Ma On Shan and Lok Ma Chau Spur lines - is set to compete in December. The result will be that commuters will benefit from reliable high-speed 4G service throughout the entirety of MTR’s current network.

4G LTE network rollout timeline

Our 4G LTE service becomes available at East Tsim Sha Tsui Station on the West Rail Line in the early hours of Tuesday, 12 November; while the East Rail Line is expected to be covered by late November, followed by the West Rail Line and Ma On Shan Line in early December, and the Lok Ma Chau Spur Line before end of year.

4G/3G network expansion aligned with MTR rail extension plans

Early this year, 3 Hong Kong’s 4G LTE service became available throughout seven main MTR lines – Island, Tsuen Wan, Tseung Kwan O, Tung Chung, Disneyland Resort, Airport Express and Kwun Tong. Service expansion has been aligned with MTR’s rail extension plans such that our 3G and 4G services are expected to become available on the new West Island Line from Sheung Wan to Kennedy Town, the South Island Line (East) from Admiralty to South Horizons and the Kwun Tong Line Extension from Yau Ma Tei to Whampoa when construction completes between 2014 and 2015.

Peter Wong, HTHKH’s Chief Executive Officer and Group Managing Director, said: “We are committed to providing smooth high-speed mobile broadband service to commuters using various public mass transport systems – the MTR being a prime example. Achieving 4G LTE coverage of the entire MTR network in 2013 represents a significant milestone in further popularising the 4G mobile experience in Hong Kong.”
