It meets the needs of the Hong Kong public and local and international businesses with a wide range of services including local telephony, local data and broadband, international telecommunications, mobile, and other telecommunications businesses such as customer premises equipment sale, outsourcing, consulting, and contact centers .

Together with the highly successful media business of its parent company, PCCW Limited, HKT offers innovative media content and services across the PCCW Groupʹs unique quadruple-play platforms fixed-line, broadband Internet access, TV and mobile.

The primary purposes of the .hkt TLD is to protect and further the HKT brand that has been established for more than 80 years in Hong Kong and to promote its services and products through sub domains.

As a leading telecommunications services provider in Hong Kong, we believe in the forefront of innovation and technologies and are therefore putting forward this proposal to operate the .hkt TLD.

Furthermore, HKT intends to work with competent registry back-end and front-end services providers who can fully implement the registry systems in compliance with the ICANN specifications and in accordance with the technical responses to #22-44, so that the Registry may ensure a secure and stable implementation of the .hkt and “.香港電訊” TLDs that supports consumer trust.
