Luxemburg-based Societe Europeenne des Satellites and Asia Satellite Telecommunications (AsiaSat) will set up a multimedia platform in Hong Kong early next year to provide high-speed Internet-transmission service in the region. The platform would use AsiaSat's digital satellites to distribute video, sound and Internet data directly to personal computers in businesses and homes across Asia, the companies said.
