HONG KONG, Nov. 11, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- City Telecom (H.K.) Limited (HKSE:1137) (Nasdaq:CTEL) and wholly owned subsidiary, Hong Kong Broadband Network Limited (HKBN) is pleased to announce the launch of a phenomenal value service package for symmetric 100Mbps broadband, bbWi-Fi and a perfectly sized 7-inch display - Samsung GALAXY Tab at HK$269/month (US$35).

In 2004, when we launched our symmetric 100Mbps and 1Gbps to the home services, broadband was mainly used to connect to a single family PC. Today, our homes are seeing a proliferation of multiple internet enabled devices such as individual PCs and laptops, IP-TV, smart phones and tablets, IP video cameras, game consoles, Wi-Fi TV etc. Compelling priced at HK$169/month (US$22) and HK$199/month (US$26) for our standalone 100Mbps and 1Gbps services, the question now becomes "Why not enjoy this extra bandwidth?", from legacy thinking of "Why do I need this extra bandwidth?"

"Today, we are pleased to launch pervasive service packages that include our Fibre-based broadband service, home & outdoor Wi-Fi, bundled with the latest 7-inch mobile tablet Samsung GALAXY Tab ( http://galaxytab.samsungmobile.com/ ). Today, the technical specification of current Wi-Fi '802.11n' standard far exceeds the limitations of popular legacy xDSL broadband services in Hong Kong, which are commonly limited to 8Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload. Upgrading to HKBN's Fibre-based symmetric 100Mbps or 1Gbps broadband service is the best way to unleash the power of popular smart phones and tablets, especially in a multiple internet enabled devices home setting that is so common today," June Lam, Associate Director of Consumer and Corporate Marketing.
