Hong Kong's PCCW Eyes UK Broadband Market
From BrandRepublic: Asian telecom firm PCCW eyes UK broadband market
"Asian telecom giant PCCW aims to shake up the booming UK broadband market with the launch of a wireless service called now.
The service is being rolled out in London from this week, ahead of phased launches in other UK cities, according to demand. Unlike fixed-line broadband, now relies on signals from mobile phone masts. It can be moved between locations and is not dependent on either a phone line or a Wi-Fi hub."
"Keith Hawkins, Freeserve's former consumer managing director, is spearheading the rollout as senior vice-president of sales and marketing of UK Broadband, a subsidiary of PCCW."
