In order to provide hikers with a general picture about the mobile network coverage in country parks, the Office of the Communications Authority (OFCA) has conducted a survey along popular hiking and country trails about the coverage of mobile networks. The main objective of the survey is to determine whether calls can be connected to at least one of the mobile networks along these trails under normal circumstances. The information should be particularly useful if a hiker wishes to make an emergency 112 call, which will connect the hiker to the police through any mobile network which has coverage at the location under concern, regardless of which network service the hiker has subscribed to. This section contains the measurement data obtained in the survey in the form of digital maps. Please read the Notices and Disclaimer in this section carefully and indicate your acceptance of them before accessing and using the measurement data. While we will strive to keep the information as updated as possible, we welcome your feedback. Please contact
if you have any comment to make about this section.
NOTICES AND DISCLAIMER
Information on Mobile Network Coverage
- The maps in the 'Mobile Network Coverage Survey' section of OFCA's web site (thereafter referred to as 'this section') are produced for giving hikers a general picture about the mobile network coverage along individual hiking or country trails. They should not be used as substitutes for the hiking maps such as the Countryside Series Paper Maps published by the Survey and Mapping Office of the Lands Department.
- Information on mobile network coverage contained in this section is compiled by OFCA based on the survey it has conducted and is produced for reference by the public. Users should note that the sentence 'calls could be connected to one or more local network(s)' does not mean that they will be able to use their mobile phones along a particular trail, as the service may be provided by a mobile network operator other than the one that the user subscribes to. However, on such parts of a trail it is still possible for any user to make emergency calls by dialing '112', which will be connected through any local mobile network. Users should also note that the information shall be used for reference only and the data are subject to variations due to environmental, geographical and other relevant factors. Users should refer to updated information provided by individual mobile network operators for the coverage of the network they have subscribed.
- Whilst OFCA had endeavoured to ensure that the data were correct as at the date of the collection, no warranty or guarantee, express or implied, is given as to its accuracy of the information. OFCA is entitled to delete, suspend or edit the material at its absolute discretion without giving any notice or reason.
