Dear Forum members, does anyone know if there can be a fixed line delivered from other providers
, not PCCW? Would e.g. a combined homeline & mobile service work on Lamma? Like Smartphone offers. I live in Mo Tat and dealing with PCCW is a nightmare and expensive too. I would love to hear if someone has a better experience and suggestion.

Short answer: no alternatives for Broadband on Lamma, it's a very slow-speed monopoly for PCCW.

You can get the same service on the same PCCW lines a bit cheaper service from Netfront on a shorter commitment, but the actual service and support would be provided by the same Netvigator staff.

Only alternative is giving up your Broadband line and going 3G/4G wireless, but it's much more expensive and has a monthly data cap of 5-10GB, so forget streaming TV or downloading movies. It can be several times faster than PCCW Broadband, but it completely depends on location, from no service to great service. Broadband works slow, but reliable almost everywhere on Lamma.
Check your mobile phone data speed inside your flat. Set the phone as a temporary Wifi hotspot at first and if it works well, consider a Wifi router with a mobile SIM card.

and this is unfortunatble for some parts on our side of the island not available. So mobile will work only in areas with coverage but not in some homes. Therefore I need a different set-up but was not sure if anyone else apart from PCCW/HKT delivers fixed line to our island to combine it with a mobile contract to save at least a bit of those cost.
