QUOTE=james_hklocal;3619548]Netvigator / PCCW can charge the highest price not only because they have the best coverage but also highest overseas bandwidth - hence better / stable connection when downloading, streaming video and playing online games from overseas servers. When other ISPs started service around 20 years ago, they rented PCCW's undersea cable. I bet most of them, if not all are still renting.
Smartone mobile is one of the best value operator, but they don't allow tethering.[/QUOTE]
This forum is full of people that just don't have a clue, and can't grasp simple concepts.... dumb ideas down to the point they are totally wrong, then spout it off and mis-educated others...
The same shit over and over for over 15 years... and same misconceptions never go away..... PCCW/HKBN is everything. Everyone is reselling their bandwidth, their IP backbone. everyone is using their submaricables. FFS NO!
Guys just listen to jgl, ignore EVERYONE else.
James, tell me which of these cables belongs to PCCW....
Tell me why in Big Asia Tsunami why was Netvigator last to get back up, 2 weeks down? Whilst eg my ISP was only down for 3 hours?
