Telecom Asia — Mobile operator 3 Hong Kong has launched a premium voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) service that will enable a wider range of smart devices than just smartphones to make and receive calls. The premium VoWi-Fi service enables the use of up to five devices, including smartwatches, tablets and PCs, along with a smartphone connecting to the same cloud service account.
3 Hong Kong will offer free “myTV Super” 5GB data SIM cards at 3Shops and other designated outlets starting mid-March. The card enables mobile users to watch Television Broadcasts (TVB) programs from 30 thematic TV channels for 30 days via the new “myTV Super” paid mobile app. 3 Hong Kong’s ultra-fast 4G LTE network makes popular Hong Kong, Japanese and Korean dramas – along with classic Cantonese movies, animation, variety shows and children’s programmes – available to mobile users on the move. Offer available while stocks last.
Telecom Asia — 3 HK, the mobile arm of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings Limited (HTHKH), announced it completed a successful bilateral international voice-over-LTE roaming trial with Japan’s NTT DoCoMo. The trial used S8 Home Routed (S8HR) architecture, an LTE data roaming-based technology that can be deployed without IMS interaction between parties.
