If you want the fastest possible internet connection in the city, Hong Kong Broadband Network chief executive Ricky Wong Wai-kay has the solution. His company is offering an ultra-high speed one gigabit per second broadband service but you must be willing to pay for it - at $1,680 per month.

The service is targeted at professionals working from home and the offer price is for the first 200 customers. To drive home the message of ultra-high speed connection, HKBN is launching an advertising campaign featuring Olympics champion hurdler Liu Xiang.
