PCCW-HKT mobile service has augmented its 4G LTE mobile network by connecting the MTR base stations with high-speed 1000Mbps# optical fibers, so that more MTR passengers can enjoy faster 4G services with the larger bandwidth in 7 major MTR lines.
# 1000Mbps is the network specification for the fiber backbone and is different from the actual speed experienced by the end users.
