CMHK launches Greater Bay Area service plan

China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK) has launched a new Greater Bay Area Service Plan to cater to the increasing connectivity needs between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao.

The Supreme Greater Bay Area service plan is designed to provide hassle-free cross-boundary connectivity for customers traveling within the Greater Bay Area for work.

The plan provides 6GB of data for a standard monthly fee of HK$198, with optional voice packages, plus additional administration fees of HK$18 per month.

It was developed in collaboration with China Mobile Group Guangdong and Macau telecoms operator CTM.

In line with the HKSAR government's Greater Bay Area development plan, CMHK will also work to build up IT capabilities and support the integrated economic and social development of the area.

“The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is significant in that it works in parallel with the ‘Belt and Road’ strategy to power ahead China’s far-reaching open-door strategy. For the Greater Bay Area to succeed as a world-class city cluster, free flow of people, goods and information is fundamental,” CMHK chairman Dr Li Feng said.

“Close cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao will be vital to enable free information flow. We are confident that Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao will develop closer links, with increasing collaboration in the areas of network infrastructure, technological development, business promotion and big data utility, in order to collectively build a bright future for the Greater Bay Area.”
