"So-net is a very significant element of the Sony Dream Community, which draws on Sony hardware, broadband services, and content assets - such as music, movies, games - and connects them seamlessly," said Senji Yamamoto, president of Sony Communication Network Corporation.
"Thus, it enables customers to be connected interactively in the largest community in the world. So-net continues in Sony's tradition of quality and we expect it will be a key player to shape the broadband market in Hong Kong."
Sony Communication Network Corporation had introduced the So-net ISP service in Japan in 1996, and had recently awarded So-net HK a sub-license to operate a broadband service under the So-net brand.
Subscribers need only pay a monthly service fee to access a host of services including flexible personal information management tools, such as upgradeable e-mail, and file storage space within the So-net HK domain. They will have a choice of network speeds at 1.5Mbps and 3Mbps, with reliability, quality performance and coverage throughout Hong Kong, a company statement read.
So-net HK partners Business eSolutions (of PCCW), iLink Holdings and NASDAQ-listed Portal Software are tasked with ensuring high-speed, quality service for the SAR's sophisticated customers.
"We aim to become a preferred choice in this market. We have therefore concentrated on forming links with principal players in the industry to maintain our high standards of customer-focused service," said Nobumasa Yui, division manager of So-net HK.
