What is TKO Express?
True geographical diversity for Financial institutions, global carriers, ISPs and Enterprises in Hong Kong
TKO Express is the first domestic submarine cable to directly link Chai Wan and Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate. It is the only truly diverse network path connecting these two areas.
TKO Express is the first path to offer true geographical diversity into Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate (TKO). At TKO, connectivity to major data centres and cable landing stations converge, with available paths built on either side of a single, narrow road. A major incident on the road could isolate the precinct.
Our direct link across the Tathong Channel increases security and reduces risk for businesses.
Spanning just 3.5 km across Tathong Channel, TKO Express links the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX*) data centre to the Central business district.
The route is 18.2 km shorter than the alternate route from Sino Favor Centre to HKEX*. The short, direct path delivers the low-latency financial organisations demand for real-time transactions.
TKO Express provides a direct, low-latency path to the emerging data centre hub at Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate.
The precinct is fast becoming the ‘Gateway to Asia’ with strategic data centres and a purpose-designed landing point for international telecommunications cables. It houses numerous high-tier data centres including HKEX*, HKColo, NTT, Digital Realty, China Mobile, China Unicom, TKT, Pacnet and HSBC.
