4G 600Mbps LTE-A*

Our latest upgrade. Hong Kong's only 450Mbps LTE-A network

Every second counts because people stream music and movies and share files instantly. But none of this happens smoothly without a high-quality mobile network. HKT launched the first 300MbpsLTE-A network in 2014, then the first IP-RAN 450MbpsLTE-A capability just two years later. Never standing still, HKT went on to launch the first LTE-A 600Mbps* network , offering the fastest mobile network specification in 2017, this was based on new 256QAMβ – Quadrature Amplitude Modulation –technology reinforced by Component Carrier (3CC) inter-site LTE-A Carrier Aggregation (CA) across three 20MHz spectrum blocks , to reach the highest 600Mbpsnetwork specifications. We are determined to lead LTE-A standard evolution such that the customer experience just keeps on getting better – with faster downloads, smoother video streaming and gaming.

A maximum of 60X faster
csl’s 600Mbps LTE-A* network covers areas of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, New Territories and major Outlying Islands such as Lautau Island, Ping Chau, Chep Lap Kok, Cheung Chau and Lamma Island, as well as MTR’s West Island Line, South Island Line and Kwun Tong Line Extension.

This coverage is complemented by more than 15,000 Wi-Fi hotspots – some capable of up to 1,000Mbps^ – thereby providing csl customers with a superior all-round mobile data experience.

We have been keeping pace with MTR development by upgrading the csl network at stations in order to boost capacity and enhance network specification for downlink of 4G LTE-A network up to 600Mbps*.  The upgrade project is now complete at the following MTR stations:

Ongoing network enhancement 


The new csl mobile communications brand combines the best of two major networks – PCCW-HKT mobile service and one2free.


The result is greater coverage and the lion’s share of Hong Kong’s mobile communications spectrum bandwidth in the 900MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands. All this, added to ownership of a 1000Mbps optical-fiber terrestrial network+ for faster connectivity between the Internet and radio masts, amounts to a superfast and stable mobile data experience, regardless of the number of simultaneous users at any one time.

Remarks:

* 600Mbps is our network specification for downlink of 4G LTE-A network (with 50Mbps for uplink) provided via three sections of 20MHz continuous 4G spectrum each, which is only available to designated locations with the use of a compatible device. Actual speeds that customers experience are less than the specifications and will be affected by the device used, locations, network conditions and other extraneous factors. Compares to other commercially launched mobile networks available to customer in Hong Kong as of 1 June 2017.
450Mbps is our network specification for downlink of 4G LTE-A network (with 50Mbps for uplink) provided via three sections of 20MHz continuous 4G spectrum each, which is only available to designated locations with the use of a compatible CAT 9 device. Actual speeds that customers experience are less than the specifications and will be affected by the device used, locations, network conditions and other extraneous factors. Compares to other commercially launched mobile networks available to customer in Hong Kong as of 1 January 2017.
300Mbps is the network specification for downlink of 4G LTE-A (with 50Mbps for uplink) which is being rolled out and only available to specific locations with the use of a compatible CAT 6 device. Actual speeds that customers experience are considerably less than the specifications and will be affected by the device used, locations, network conditions and other extraneous factors.
According to the information from the OFCA website as at 1 Jan 2017 about the spectrum of 2600MHz, 2300MHz and 1800MHz allocated to each of the Mobile Network Operators in Hong Kong.
β 256QAM is the latest modulation technology which increases the bit rates of transmission to boost up maximum download speed.
150Mbps is network specification for downlink of 4G LTE network (2600MHz – CAT 4), with 50Mbps for uplink. However, the actual speed that customers experience will be considerably less than the network specifications and will be affected by internet conditions, server speeds, network conditions, coverage, locations, the device used, hardware, software, usage levels and other factors.
The calculation is based on the network specifications for the respective downlinks of 600Mbps LTE-A vs 3G HSPA 7.2Mbps. Actual speeds that customers experience are considerably less than the specifications and will be affected by the device used, locations, network conditions and other extraneous factors.
^ 1,000Mbps is the network specification for Wi-Fi 802.11ac only applicable to selected csl Wi-Fi hotspots in limited locations. Actual speeds experienced by customers using those hotspots are less than the network specifications and will be affected by user’s mobile device (e.g. number of internal antenna equipped), network coverage and usage, international bandwidth and other extraneous factors. For service details, please refer to http://e.hkcsl.com/wifi-e.
+ 1,000Mbps is the network specification for an internal optical-fiber network and is different from actual speeds experienced by customers.
