After going through all the previous threads related on this topic on the forum, I feel still quite unsure about what the best option is.
I am moving into my new flat in Sheung Wan end of this week. While the flat is modern, the building itself is an old building and only PCCW and I-Cable cover the building.
Now here is the dilemna:
- I-Cable advertises 130mbps broadband internet and has a package incl. TV (73 channels + Sports package with olympics and european football) for HKD 338
- PCCW offers 8mbps broaband internet and Now TV standard TV package (29 channels + English news package) for HKD 224
To be honest, I am not too fussed about the TV offering but I would need a good and reliable internet connection (downloads, movie streaming, skype etc). On paper the 130mbps vs. 8mbps seems quite impressive but PCCW argue that the 130mbps advertised by I-Cable is shared while the 8mbps they offer is allocated to me.
I'm not an expert and perfectly aware that I would never be any close to 130mbps in reality, but will I-Cable still be faster than PCCW ?
thanks a lot,
