Hong Kong: Hutchison increasing transmission ten-fold to 100G for business and consumer expansion | TeleGeography

Hong Kong fixed network operator Hutchison Global Communications (HGC) has launched a project to upgrade its entire fibre backbone infrastructure to increase transmission speeds to 100Gbps from 10Gbps to meet high bandwidth demand from business and residential users, and to support the launch of a range of new services in the second half of this year onwards.

 

HGC has set a capital expenditure budget of HKD700 million (USD90.2 million) for projects including completing the 100G network to enable it to deliver super high speed direct fibre-based multimedia content-based services to its whole footprint of more than 10,000 fibre-connected buildings and more than 1.6 million households.

 

The South China Morning Post reports that the 100G network will also serve as the infrastructure through which TVB Network Vision, the pay-TV business of free-to-air broadcaster Television Broadcasts, will transmit matches of the 2014 football World Cup in ultra high-definition.

 

Byron Chiang Yung-hon, HGC’s technology director, said the network will allow more than a million TVB subscribers to watch World Cup matches in ultra HD, and Raymond Ho Wai-ming, consumer market director at HGC, said the company was keen to promote video-on-demand programming from third-party content providers like TVB to the households that it covers with direct fibre connections.
