Ongoing network enhancement

4G LTE

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 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.

csl has become the first and only mobile network provider to offer LTE-A 300Mbps* service in Hong Kong. The new network covers major districts across New Territories, as well as MTR’s West Island Line. This capability is complemented by more than 14,000 Wi-Fi hotspots – some offering speeds up to 1,000Mbps^ – thereby providing csl customers with a superior overall mobile data experience.

Remarks:

300Mbps is the network specification for downlink of 4G LTE-A (50Mbps for uplink) which is being rolled out and at present available to limited 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.

+1,000Mbps is the network specification for an internal optical-fiber network and is different from actual speeds experienced by customers.

^Wi-Fi 1,000Mbps is the network specification for 802.11ac, applicable only to certain csl Wi-Fi hotspots at a limited number of locations. Actual speeds experienced by customers using such hotspots are considerably less than the network specifications and will be affected by user’s mobile device (eg number of a device’s internal antennae), network coverage, international bandwidth and other extraneous factors.
