3 Hong Kong extends 4G LTE and 3G services to
new Whampoa and Ho Man Tin MTR stations
Hong Kong – 24 October 2016 – Customers using new MTR stations – including Whampoa and Ho Man Tin on the new Kwun Tong extension – can now enjoy smooth and reliable 4G LTE and 3G services on platforms and trains, as part of 3 Hong Kong’s 4G enhancement project for the growing MTR network.
4G LTE and 3G services now cover Kwun Tong extension
Local mobile operators, including 3 Hong Kong, collaborated to invest in the integrated radio system serving Whampoa and Ho Man Tin stations. The result is smooth and speedy 4G LTE and 3G services at the new stations and on trains.
3 Hong Kong’s network deployment is being rolled out in step with the MTR’s provision of new lines. 4G LTE and 3G services, for example, will be available the instant the South Island Line (East) extension opens.
Daniel Chung, 3 Hong Kong’s Chief Technology Officer (Mobile), said: “3 Hong Kong is extending 4G LTE and 3G coverage well ahead of schedule in preparation for development of Hong Kong’s railways. We have already deployed LTE TDD 2300 MHz technology on the Kwun Tong extension, as well as that planned for the South Island Line. In fact, 3 Hong Kong is working on 4G LTE enhancement at 18 high-traffic MTR stations such as Tsimshatsui, Mongkok and Causeway Bay to improve the overall user experience.”
