    Which is the cheapest internet service provider in HK

    My father just got a computer in Hong Kong and he plan to use internet service

    He is bombard with many internet info down his home and dunno which one is to go for

    Here is the main criteria

    His main usage is really for browsing internet, downloading movies/series

    So with a budget, which is the BEST & CHEAPEST one to go?

    It doesn't have to be the FASTEST, as long as it is the cheapest and best value.

    I heard it is HKBN? and PCCW is the worst and most expensive?


    Or is there a site where you can compare the internet service provider in terms of price, length of contract, company pros & cons etc because in NZ and Australia has a few useful sites that are like that

    Your advice and advice will be appreciated


    Kind regards

    First I would check which service is available in his home. Even though I live in a new building, I can't get HKBN.

    You can check your coverage here.

    Not what you are asking exactly, but here's a list of ISPs in HK (some/many do not cover retail usage, but should be pretty complete).
    HK Internet Service Providers Association

    All relatively similar....

    Its $100-200 per month. How can we ask for the cheapest and best. You're talking about saving a few dollars per month. It's nothing.

    Lol cheapest and best is usually mutually exclusive

    Maybe you can start of with the 100mb broadband provided by PCCW or HKBN.

    Smartone is cheapest, uses HKBN network but doesn't force extras onto you like tv packages and home phone etc like HKBN does. Currently about $103 per month for 500mbps or $113 for 1gbps on 24 month contract when you factor in one month free and a $480 rebate, waive installation charges.

    Internation suggest these. But my friend told me to get PCCW, it offers land line phone, internet and mobile all together, but I guess all internet providers now do this.

    PCCW
    Hong Kong Boardband
    Pacific Internet
    GovWifi
    HKnet

    I am with HKBN - 1000M for $160 with a lot of free gifts

    And if you ever run into an issue, they will send someone within 24 hours (My experience) to fix or mostly replace the faulty device.
