PCCW’s lead in Hong Kong’s broadband market is under pressure, as rivals launch aggressive discounts for high-speed internet.
Hutchison has fired the latest salvo in the battle for subscribers, with its mobile arm 3 offering fixed-mobile services under the new brand “3ree Broadband.”
Under the tie-up, 3 is now marketing the residential fixed line services of its sister firm Hutchison Global Communications.
“The service, comprising residential broadband, residential telephone line and IDD 0080, has been integrated with 3 Hong Kong’s mobile and Wi-Fi wireless Internet access services,” said 3.
To begin with, 3 is offering a 100Mbps residential fiber service for HK$99 ($12.75) per month.
New subscribers can get the 100Mbps fiber service for free for six months or 30 months of free fixed line telephony.
Subscribers can also receive 3’s Home Wi-Fi service and Outdoor Wi-Fi services for free.
