The solid financial results for HKT during the six months ended June 30, 2015 demonstrated the strong market position of all of HKT’s lines of business and the successful integration of CSL since the completion of the acquisition in May 2014.

The board of directors of the Trustee-Manager has resolved an interim distribution of 25.79 HK cents per Share Stapled Unit.

HKT Group Managing Director, Alex Arena, said, “HKT has built a fiber-rich fixed broadband network while our market-leading mobile network is also being dimensioned for higher speeds – we view this as a crucial success factor for the future of our business because consumers are increasingly bandwidth-hungry due to the continuing development of faster consumer devices and the emergence of more sophisticated applications. We have positioned ourselves as the one-stop-shop which can meet the various communication needs of our individual and business customers. Our continuous enhancement of user experience in both fixed and mobile services – 10G PON and the new Tap & Go mobile payment service being examples – will fuel further growth of these segments.”
