    Thanks,

    Internet... I mean broadband at home. Unfortunately I think that i can´t have HKBN in Lamma Island.
    I am checking PCCW, but I am not sure what is the difference in between NETVIGATOR and PCCW.

    With NowTV do you need to sign a contract of 12/18/24 months or is it a rolling contract?

    Thanks,

    PCCW is the ISP (internet service provider), their broadband service is called netvigator, their TV service now TV. Now TV is actually IPTV but you get a set-top box with it so you can watch it on a TV.

    You need to sign a contract but you can bundle now TV with the broadband to get better prices. I think they throw in a landline, too. The contract duration depends on your negotiation skills. Insist on excluding any kind of value added services. READ before you sign.

    I am not happy with PCCW dominance and monopoly but it is heads and shoulders above others
