Media OutReach – 3 April 2020 –

Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK) has been committed to building the best 5G network,
which will be available to the market starting midnight on 1 April 2020. Today,
at its flagship store in Central, CMHK became the first mobile network operator
in Hong Kong to produce a live 5G launch ceremony and application demonstration
using Virtual Reality (VR) technology. As one of the local operators with the
largest 5G spectrum in Hong Kong, CMHK is dedicated to using its
leading technology and abundant spectrum resources to present a superior and
unparalleled 5G network experience to its commercial and individual customers.

Dr. Li Feng, Chairman of China Mobile
Hong Kong, said, “Hong Kong is working hard to fight the Coronavirus pandemic.
Aside from showing our heartfelt gratitude to a group of dedicated frontline
medical staff, we hope to work together with other local mobile network
operators and the people of Hong Kong in facing the challenges and overcoming
the epidemic with the latest technology, as soon as possible. Starting at
midnight on 1 April 2020, CMHK’s 5G network will be officially put into
service, which will help inject new energy into the various industries and
individuals in the city, bringing a future of infinite possibilities.”

Prime Frequency Band and Leading Network Technology: Creating a
Superior 5G Network Experience

CMHK currently
possesses the largest number of 3.5GHz spectrums, often referred to as the “5G
Prime Frequency Band” and up to now, it’s the only 5G network provider in Hong
Kong that has acquired 3.3GHz (3380-3400MHz) and 3.5GHz (3400-3460MHz) of
continuous bandwidth spectrum (80 MHz in total), which allows for better indoor
network optimization and to provide users with a high-quality network
experience more flexibly and efficiently. At the same time, the 4.9GHz spectrum
will be used together with the existing 4G spectrum resources re-farming to
resolve the current restrictions of the 5G network in certain areas within Hong
Kong, thereby providing customers with a seamless 5G experience.

Initially, the 5G network will cover
the entire Hong Kong city — 90% of the major Central and Western, Wan Chai, and
Causeway Bay Districts; nearly 90% of the Kwun Tong District; and close to 80%
of the Tsuen Wan District. In addition to CMHK’s 38 retail stores (exclude Tai
Po), its 5G network coverage will also include popular spots, landmarks and
shopping malls, such as Hong Kong
International Airport, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Cyberport,
Science Park, Harbour City, Olympian City, Landmark, tmtplaza, etc.

Keeping consumers’ need for higher
network speed in mind, CMHK has tested the 5G network speed with the latest 5G
smartphones. Mr. Sean Lee, Director and Chief Executive Officer of China Mobile
Hong Kong, said, “Changes in the usage habits of the public and the widespread
application of the Internet of Things (IoT) by corporate have increased the
demand for uploading data. Therefore, 5G networks must not only have
low-latency and high download speed transmission characteristics, but also fast
upload speeds. Today, our speed test shows that CMHK’s 5G network has a latency
of less than 10ms, a download speed exceeding 1Gbps, and an upload speed of
over 130Mbps, which served as solid evidence to demonstrate that CMHK’s 5G
network can better meet customer needs.”

CMHK has also introduced 5G roaming services in some locations in Mainland
China and South Korea. By the end of 2020, it will also bring the borderless 5G
experience to other popular countries and regions within Asia and Europe.

In terms of
the enterprise solutions, CMHK took the lead in accomplishing the 5G standalone
network trial as early as the end of November last year, which allows for the
provision of “network slicing” services. Different slices can provide
customized private network services and a diverse mix of 5G applications for
corporate customers, making it easier to facilitate different projects within
the financial, real estate, and property management sectors, coming up in the
near future. CMHK also founded “The Greater Bay Area 5G Industry Alliance” in
August last year to promote the sharing of business opportunities, mutual
cooperation and exchange, and collaboration among various industries, as well
as the joint research and development of products and services based on 5G
communication technology, innovation, and industry standards. This will also
help in uniting academic and political stakeholders to build a win-win 5G
ecosystem. This year, CMHK will launch a “5G Industry Application” white paper
to provide various 5G smart enterprise solutions. The six major directions
include smart travel, smart lifestyle, smart economy, smart environment, smart
government, and smart citizens, with a commitment to transforming Hong Kong
into a world-class smart city.
