C&WHKT gets go-ahead for Asia cables
Cable & Wireless HKT (C&W HKT), now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Internet giant Pacific Century CyberWorks, has been given permission to start constructing fibre optic cables linking Hong Kong to Shanghai in China and Malaysia.
The cable project is one part of the company’s plan to rapidly expand its broadband Internet, ATM and wireless services outside of Hong Kong – with Greater China, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia the main focus.
The Hong Kong Government on Friday gave the telecom company permits to land the cables in Hong Kong off Lantau Island and begin laying two submarine cables.
The fibre optic submarine cables will provide telecommunication facilities and services to the Asia-Pacific region by connecting Hong Kong with Kuantan on the east coast of Malaysia and Chongming for Shanghai, China.
Work will start in November of this year and last for several months.
Trader: PCCW + SONY!!!!
Pacific Century CyberWorks-Japan (PCCW Japan), a wholly owned subsidiary of PCCW, will, subject to signing of legally binding agreements, form a strategic business alliance with Sony PCL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation. Sony PCL will provide leading-edge audio and visual hardware and technical support in the construction and development of PCCW-Japan's NOW studio, expected to begin later this year.
Sony PCL will also assist PCCW-Japan with the recruitment and training of more than 100 new employees with experience in TV program production, website design and other related areas to operate the studio. Costs of providing such support and assistance will be agreed with Sony PCL.
``The construction of a cutting-edge studio in Tokyo deepens our long-term commitment to the Japanese market,'' said Todd Bonner of PCCW-Japan. ``This is a key part of both our Japan strategy and PCCW's global strategy to drive broadband content distribution to consumers around the globe.''
Rolled out in June 2000 from its London studio, NOW is the world's first truly converged TV-web service. NOW delivers two features: a linear TV experience and streaming video synchronized to web content. With NOW, TV viewer and Internet users become ``viewsers,'' who can drill down into vortals (vertical portals) for in-depth content, including video clips, graphics, animation, text and web links.
The Tokyo studio will plan, develop and edit content for NOW Japan. It will also edit and translate popular Japanese content into multiple languages for export via NOW's global network.
``The new studio demonstrates PCCW's commitment to the development of broadband Internet in Japan,'' said Shiro Koriyama, Chairman of Sony PCL. ``We are delighted to be contributing to this and are looking forward to working with PCCW-Japan on this project.''
Additional NOW studios are planned for New York and Greater China.

Pacific Century CyberWorks Debuts on New York Stock Exchange
TUESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2000 6:20:00 AM EST
NEW YORK, Aug 22, 2000 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Pacific Century CyberWorks (PCCW) began trading today on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under ticker symbol "PCW." The launch of PCCW's sponsored American Depository Receipt (ADR) program on the NYSE follows the completion on August 17 of its landmark merger with one of Asia's leading communications companies, Cable & Wireless HKT Limited.
"Listing PCCW shares on the NYSE will help us build our U.S. investor base and international presence," said Alexander Arena, Deputy Chairman of the Company's Executive Committee. "This listing will provide U.S. investors with direct access to the stock of our company, which we believe will be a pre-eminent New Economy growth vehicle for Asia and the world.
"Listing on the NYSE also assures investors of the company's commitment to accountability and transparency," Arena said.
PCCW runs eight business units, grouped into three operating sectors: Telecommunications Services, Global Communications Services and Net Enterprises. Telecommunications Services consists of fixed line operations, and represents the engine room providing cash for the other two high-growth sectors. Operating initially in Hong Kong, this sector will expand into Greater China and eventually worldwide.
Global Communications Services consists of two business units: Mobility Services and Connectivity Services. Strategic joint ventures will allow this sector to expand regionally and globally.
The third sector is Net Enterprises, consisting of four business units: Broadband Business to Consumer Services, Business to Business Services, Data Center/Web Hosting Services and CyberWorks Ventures. The company has more than 5 million customer accounts, comprising 3.7 million business and residential telephone customers, nearly one million mobile customers and over one-half million Internet subscribers including 77,000 broadband residential and business customers.
Earlier this month PCCW acquired 81% of Jaleco Ltd., the Japanese entertainment software producer listed on JASDAQ, facilitating the Company's entry into Japan's broadband market.
Each PCCW American Depository Receipt (ADR) represents 10 ordinary shares traded on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong 0008.
PCCW is the largest Internet company in Asia by market capitalization, and one of the largest Internet companies in the world. PCCW recently completed Asia's largest merger with Cable and Wireless HKT, Hong Kong's top telecommunications company. This positions PCCW to take advantage of the expanding Internet, broadband and communications opportunities across the world. With strategic businesses in broadband B2C, B2B, mobility, connectivity, web hosting and venture capital services, and strong cash-flow businesses in telecommunications and infrastructure services, PCCW is building on its aggressive global growth strategy.
