Mobile broadband wars just got stiff new competition.
It was bound to happen, Netvigator has launched its Netvigator Everywhere service in Hong Kong. This means with a USB modem you can get Wi-Fi, 3G and HSDPA with download speeds of up to 7.2 mbps broadband connection to your laptop anywhere in Hong Kong.
Yes, this is not the first service of its kind in HK, but, if you are a Netvigator subscriber, it will be the cheapest with plans starting at HK$328 for a 18-month plan (HK$538 if you are not a subscriber which makes it similar to other competitor prices). And those that get in now can get a free Auto Network Selector which we think is a fancy term for the USB Modem.
We expect this competitive rate to be matched or beat by the mobile operators like 3 and Smartone soon, so you might want to see how this release affects everyone else and how the dust settles by mid-Fall before making your choice.
