(ECNS) -- As China's first self-developed satellite communications system, Tiantong will offer commercial mobile services in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) on Wednesday, China Telecom, one of the major telecommunications service provider announced.

Subscribers in the HKSAR can access the mobile satellite system for mobile communication services including SMS conversation, voice communications, data transmission, and other services without changing their SIM cards.

The Tiantong satellite service has been widely used in disaster relief, emergency rescue, tourism exploration and internet of things operations.
