3 Hong Kong is committed to delivering an advanced and reliable telecoms service to data-savvy customers in Hong Kong. We pledge to continuously enhance our technologies and service varieties to deliver the best-in-town mobile service to customers. 

The roles of a telecom operator are ever-changing, especially as we enter the Internet of Things  (IoT) era. While we are dedicated to maintaining an advanced network, we are building new platforms for new products and services while drawing on our strengths in fixed-line, mobile and Wi-Fi technologies to constantly enhance the customer experience.

Strong gaming platform
3 Hong Kong and 3Home Broadband have joined forces with Razer, the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers. We have opened the first RazerStore in Hong Kong with tailored mobile and residential broadband tariff plans bundled with Razer’s gaming gears. A major benefit to gamers is that they are able to maximise their performance on 3 Hong Kong’s fast and stable network, especially on high capacity and low latency, no matter on the move or at home.

In addition, 3 Hong Kong has partnered with GASH, a leading Asian digital entertainment payment platform, to launch a co-branded game point card in July. This will allow Hong Kong gamers to enjoy an attractive promotional offer to access a massive resource of games and digital content and get special edition game items via a co-branded card.

Through the partnerships with renowned gaming brands, we can meet the needs of young people by combining network service excellence with advanced gaming systems.

Unprecedented network experience
As the telecoms world is moving towards the 5G and IoT era, 3 Hong Kong is actively preparing for network architecture planning necessary for 5G technology delopyment. In addition to using CA technology with 5CC, we have conducted research and carried out trials for various technologies, such as small cell installations, network cloudification with technologies such as CloudEdge, CloudRAN and CloudAIR, network function virtualisation and Massive MIMO towards the 5G era. These efforts will enable the timely launch of services to meet market demand as soon as the 5G standard and Hong Kong’s spectrum plans are confirmed.

Besides its advanced mobile network, 3 Hong Kong is one of the largest commercial Wi-Fi service providers with over 25,000+ Wi-Fi hotspots in Hong Kong.

Innovative tariff plans
As a leader of data services, 3 Hong Kong tailored various data service packages to suit the needs of customers, such as data packs for WhatsApp and Line and a “Night Fever” unlimited data pack which enables customers to use data service freely through the night – all to provide a hassle-free experience for social media users and nocturnal dramas fans.

Recently, 3 Hong Kong launched a groundbreaking flexible “cross-month top-up data” service to enable customers to subscribe extra local data package to be used in a period of three months to one year, providing customers a peace of mind.

Hassle-free roaming service
3 Hong Kong is also committed to serving customers with a high-quality roaming experience so users can stay connected with friends and family while travelling or working overseas. We offer a wide selection of roaming products including a data roaming daily pass to deliver a hassle-free data roaming experience in 161 destinations via 244 networks. Riding on 3 Group’s strong presence in Europe, we launched a “Europe Roaming Pass” which enables customers to enjoy unlimited voice and data services at a favourable fixed charge in the United Kingdom, Austria, Denmark, Ireland, Italy and Sweden via 3 Group’s network operators.
