HKBN COO, Co-Owner and huge Rex fan, NiQ Lai said, "Rex is one of our #StartfromLimit HKBN ambassadors. By sharing our ambassadors' Hong Kong life stories, we want Hong Kongers to reject the idea that apparent limits should define us. Instead, limits should be the starting point from which new possibilities begin. HKBN's sponsorship of Rex for this exclusive live free broadcast is our gift to all Hong Kongers."
Echoing this attitude, the spirit of #StartfromLimit has always been a part of HKBN's DNA. From low-price IDD in the 1990s and fibre broadband in early 2000s, to the more recent introduction of OTT content and mobile services, HKBN has always sought to break through the limits set by the legacy incumbent, with a view to delivering knock-out better services to Hong Kongers.
