Great ad for broadband pipes in Hong Kong (just 45 seconds):
Hong Kong Broadband Networks (HKBN) offers 1 Gbps symmetric Internet access as well as lesser speeds. Their 100 Mbps service costs HK$238 or about US$30 per month.
However, HKBN has to pay substantially more for IP Transit than an ISP in the US or EU, so their real offer comes in two parts:
- 100 Mbps for local traffic, but only 20 Mbps for "overseas" traffic.
(And there are some complaints about the actual bandwidth available for overseas connections).
