History

Established in 1995 as New T&T Limited,[2] it was one of the first[citation needed] telecommunication operators to be offered a fixed line license after the Hong Kong Government decided to open this market to competition;[6] Cable & Wireless Hongkong Telecom had heretofore enjoyed a monopoly.[4] The next year New T&T Limited was offering IDD service and residential fixed-line services.[7]

Making its first net profit in financial year 2001,[8] it was soon after renamed Wharf New T&T Limited.[9]

Another name change, in 2003, yielded Wharf T&T Limited.[10]

By 2006 the company decided to differentiate itself by providing some services through a different unit; Wharf T&T would focus on business clients and subsidiary i-Cable Communications, residential ones.[11]

In 2007 it founded Wharf T&T eBusiness Limited, a subsidiary that delivers broadband applications and web applications to SME customers.[12]

Subsidiaries

Subsidiaries include COL Limited, which provides IT services to businesses having more than "36 years experience in the IT sector";[2] i-Cable Communications, which provides residential services;[11] and Wharf T&T eBusiness Limited (WeB), which was established in January 2007 and is an Internet service provider catering to SMEs.[2]
