market presence with an enterprise customer base of more than 100,000.
Billy Yeung, HKBN Co-Owner and CEO -- Enterprise Solutions
said, "Our aspiration is to become the primary carrier of choice within the
Enterprise segment. With our unique tri-carrier network diversity and scale from
the integration of HKBN, NWT and WTT, we are now strongly positioned to deliver
a compelling service and value alternative to HKT. Just like HKBNES' mantra, "Unleashing
the Power of Business" we are here to empower our customers to advance their businesses."
NiQ Lai, HKBN Co-Owner and
Group CEO added, "The lesson we learnt from the NWT integration back in 2016
was a great warm-up for this WTT integration. HKBN is the only carrier run by
Co-Owners and similar to how NWT executives became our Co-Owners, we will be
offering a similar opportunity to our WTT colleagues. As Co-Owners, we care far
more than merely salaried employees and are far more empowered to do whatever
it takes to partner with our customers rather than merely selling services to them."
Currently HKBN is run by
over 300 Co-Owners -- supervisory-and-above-level Talents who have voluntarily invested
their savings in HKBN stock. Following the recent approval of a new round of
Co-Ownership Plan1, around 1,000 Talents are eligible to join the
Plan to have strong interest alignment with shareholders and
