Beijing Netcom, which has taken 80% of the residential broadband market in Beijing, says it has signed broadband installation agreements with 108 hotels in the city which have been designated as the service hotels of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Liu Fang, manager of Olympic Client Department of Beijing Netcom, says that after the agreements are signed, Beijing Netcom will hold a separate negotiation with each of the concerned hotels to determine the investment involved and schedules of the construction which may be carried out from the beginning of 2006 to the end of 2007.

After the transformation, those Olympics Hotels will be able to provide high-speed broadband network access, video frequency program ordering, video hotel room service and video telephone services during the 2008 Olympics.

Beijing Netcom has not disclosed the total investment involved, but it says that it will handle most of the transformation costs and the hotels will be responsible for the operation of the broadband service.
