PCCW's Business eSolutions Launches Hong Kong's First Application Management Services Center

Hong Kong, April 9, 2001 - Just 30 minutes of IDD calls anytime in April will earn PCCW-HKT Global Calling Card users 60 minutes worth of free calls from mid-May to mid-June.

Global Calling Card users can chalk up free minutes calling friends, family or colleagues in April between Hong Kong and 20 countries in Asia, Europe and North America. The earned free 60 minutes of calls apply to Hong Kong and the same countries.

The 20 designated countries are: the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea.

"During next month's holiday season, many users are expected to go abroad or call their friends and family overseas," said PCCW-HKT Consumer Marketing General Manager Beatrice Fung. "It's a great way to catch up with loved ones while earning free minutes."

The 60 free minutes can be used for multiple calls between May 15 and June 14, 2001 7 p.m. - 9 a.m., Mondays to Fridays and all day on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

As usual, Global Calling Card users can enjoy competitive inbound and outbound IDD 0060 call rates when making calls to and from Hong Kong. Through a reliable network, customers can make international calls from Hong Kong to more than 230 destinations, call back to Hong Kong from over 120 destinations, and initiate calls in more than 90 worldwide locations to other destinations outside Hong Kong.
