Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong (HTHK) and Hong Kong Broadband Network (HKBN) expanded an existing MVNO partnership, unveiling plans to combine their mobile and fixed services to better cater to a lucrative enterprise market in the territory.

HTHK stated the collaboration aims to address enterprises’ technical requirements by delivering 5G, fibre, fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) and ICT services in sectors including finance, retail and utilities.

CEO Kenny Koo explained HTHK is exploring ways to expand its strategic collaboration with HKBN to a broader level.

By combining its 5G network with HKBN’s fixed network services, “we can reap the benefits of FMC with the provision of innovative” enterprise services.

Koo added the tie-up will help corporate customers embark on a digital transformation and improve their operational efficiency.

It will also reinforce HTHK’s position in the business-to-business market.

HKBN executive vice chairman William Yeung said the companies will establish a dedicated team to expand their presence in the corporate market.

Yeung noted enterprise customers are increasing their demand for network and digital services.

HTHK’s mobile unit 3 Hong Kong launched 5G service in April 2020.
