HKBN Co-Owner and COO NiQ Lai said, "These prestigious awards recognise our strong growth and continued efforts to bring disruptive innovations and benefits to both our residential and corporate customers. Our Co-Ownership aligns the interests of our Talents and shareholders, and therefore HKBN is run with an 'owner' and entrepreneurial mindset for outstanding business execution to exceed customer and investor expectations."
HKBN Co-Owner and COO NiQ Lai receives 'Best Broadband Carrier' and 'Best MVNO' Awards from Telecom Asia Awards 2018.
