Hong Kong Broadband Network (HKBN), a wholly-owned subsidiary of City Telecom, which is considered the fastest growing broadband service provider in Hong Kong, claims to have changed the Internet experience for Discovery Bay residents with the launch of its fiber-optic network.
According to Discovery Bay customer feedback, customers in the area appear to have nothing but praise for Hong Kong's broadband fiber-optic network. Handling of huge files is simplified greatly with 1000Mbps speed for both download and upload
Alen Lin, resident of Discovery Bay, stated that there was no service disruption and download was significantly faster than with the previous service.
Another Discovery Bay HKBN Subscriber, Nelson Mak also commented favorably and said, "With just an hour of installation, the whole internet experience is changed. Downloading files and using Skype (News - Alert) with friends are so smooth now!"
Ben Hui, Mini-CEO for Discovery Bay, said that ever since HKBN arrived at Discovery Bay, residents were benefiting from additional choice, better value and better service.
Elaborating on the nature of HKBN's fiber-optic service, he said, “We believe that our service is so good, that once you have tried it, you will love it. In fact, this gives us the confidence to offer a 1 month money-back guarantee to new customers.”
He also spoke about future plans for expansion of coverage and hoped to share HKBN's telecommunications services with the residents of Discovery Bay.
In related news, HKBN's goal in upgrading its network with the Cisco (News - Alert) CRS-3 is to maintain the “Speed Guarantee” of 80 percent steady speed for its 100-Mbps services despite the escalating Internet demands of businesses and consumers. HKBN will consolidate its existing network infrastructure, reducing the number of core routers and simplifying network management. The network simplification is expected to reduce the lead time for adding new networking devices from weeks to days.
