The advent of 5G mobile Internet connectivity will see csl making the everyday lives of customers smarter and healthier, as well as more convenient and enjoyable.
HKT has acquired spectrum in the 3.3GHz, 3.5GHz, 4.9GHz and 26/28GHz frequency bands, a capability that will combine with our extensive infrastructure to get the very best out of 5G technology – all to the benefit of csl customers.
|Date of acquisition
20 times faster than maximum 4G download speeds.
The number of smart devices that can be connected simultaneously is more than 100 times greater than 4G can achieve.
Latency of less than one-thousandth of a second.
Global and Hong Kong 5G spectrums are broadly divided into three different frequency bands – high, medium and low. Each range comes with completely different characteristics and advantages.
UHF broadband for ultra-high transmission speed.
This is suitable for indoor and high-density environments, and provides ultra high-speed connectivity for multiple users simultaneously.
Considered 5G’s “golden band spectrum”, mid-band provides high speeds and wide coverage.
5G service will be rolled out to many Hong Kong districts.
Very high penetrating signal power to suit Hong Kong’s proliferation of high-rise buildings.
Use high and medium frequencies to maximize 5G coverage.

Some figures quoted are theoretical value, actual performance may vary due to location, spectrum allocated, network resource availability and the compatible handset’s capability, etc.
5G network coverage will be extended to other districts in Hong Kong and along MTR lines.
* Tai Po, Ma On Shan, parts of Sha Tin, Fanling, Sai Kung and parts of Stanley are classified as 5G restricted areas where use of the 3.5GHz spectrum is prohibited. Access to 5G service within such restricted areas requires a device compatible with other 5G spectrum.
