1300) TOPICS: INTERNET IN HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1301)   Which tertiary institutions in Hong Kong are connected to the net?

	All seven of them are. They are :-

        1. The University of Hong Kong (HKU);
        2. Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK);
        3. Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST);
        4. Hong Kong Polytechnics University (formerly Hong Kong Polytechnics)
           (HKPU);
        5. City University of Hong Kong (formerly Hong Kong City Polytechnics)
           (CityU);
        6. Hong Kong Baptist University (formerly Hong Kong Baptist College)
           (HKBU); and
        7. Lingnan College (LC).

    They are all networked together by T1 (1.544M bps) link to form HARNET
(Hongkong Academic and Research NETWork). They all share the T1 HARNET
Internet link to the NASA location in Mountain View, California. They agree
to have the link installed in CUHK, which also provides the resource to
manage the link.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1302)	Do they have access to SCHK?

	Yes, but the actual readership is unknown.  Someone from CU
said that there are a lot more to do in HK than talking to a terminal. :) :)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1303)   How to send mail to my friends at...?

    1. HKU (http://www.hku.hk)
    ======
    There're several domain names in HKU's network.

    Older users will have their accounts in @hkuxa.hku.hk and @hkuxb.hku.hk.
    Newer users will have their accounts in @hkusua.hku.hk and @hkusub.hku.hk.
    - Users in these networks will have their university number plus a "h" in
      front as their login ID. eg. "h9103642@hkuxa.hku.hk" or
      "h9201234@hkusub.hku.hk".

    Computer science students have extra accounts at @csd.hku.hk.
    Engineering students have extra accounts in @hkueee.hku.hk.
    HKU staff have @hkucc.hku.hk, eg. "cmmak@hkucc.hku.hk".
    
    Besides, the finger servers at HKU have been disabled meanwhile, ie. you
    cannot finger your friend from outside HKU network. And even users in
    different domains within HKU network can't finger users in other HKU
    domains.

    Therefore, you need to know at least the university number of your
    friend (if (s)he's a student) to send him/her an email.

    If you have problem sending mail to HKU, try contacting
    "postmaster@csd.hku.hk".


    2. CUHK (http://www.cuhk.hk)
    =======
    The easy way is to look up the person who you want to send mail to by:

	finger "names of person"@ns.cuhk.hk 
	or
	finger "names of person"@cuhk.hk 

	e.g.  finger "so and so"@ns.cuhk.hk (remember to use the double quote)

	To reach the Computer Science dept, you can use "person@cs.cuhk.hk".

	If you have problem sending mail to CU, please contact
    "postmaster@cuhk.hk".


    3. HKUST (http://www.ust.hk)
    ========
    Try: <username>@usthk.ust.hk                 ! VMS accounts  (Internet)
         <username>@usthk.bitnet                 ! VMS accounts  (Bitnet)
         <username>@uxmail.ust.hk                ! Unix accounts (Internet)

If you have problem sending mail to HKUST, please contact

1400) TOPICS: COMMERCIAL ACCESS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1401)   Who provides Internet connection services in HK?

There are now about 50 commercial Internet service providers (ISPs) in
Hong Kong, providing access from UUCP to dedicated leased line connection.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1402)   Who are the service providers and how can I contact them?

>From 1411 onwards, each ISP will occupy a section. You'll find a summary of
the respective ISP there. Check the TABLE OF CONTENTS and you will see a
list of them. You can contact the ISP by the information provided in the
list below.

Note that the international area code for Hong Kong is 852.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1403)   What are HKIX, PNETS licence etc?

Here is some general explanation of those somewhat confusing terms.

Alternet       : Many Hong Kong providers has their US link to Alternet.
                 Alternet situates in California, running a 45M bps Internet
                 backbone in the USA. It is a favourite link to the US of
                 many HK ISPs.

Frame Relay    : Some ISPs are connecting to the US/overseas using frame 
                 relay circuits. The performance and throughput of frame
                 relay circuits definitely cannot be compared with
                 international private lease circuits (IPLC).  One thing
                 for sure is that the performance and throughput of a
                 256Kbps frame relay circuit is lower than a 256Kbps
                 IPLC and it is very hard to say how much lower. You have
                 to use it to feel it.

                 Most (maybe all) ISPs connected to Sprintlink are using
                 frame relay.

                 For more information on this try :
                 http://www.cuhk.hk/hkix/hkixdiag.html
                 http://frame-relay.indiana.edu/frame-relay/


HARNET         : Hong Kong Academic and Research NETwork. Tertiary
                 educational institutions in Hong Kong are networked
                 together by T1 links to form the HARNET.

                 The tertiary educational institutions access the Internet
                 via a 128k HARNET Internet link. This HARNET Internet link
                 is shared by all tertiary educational institutions. The
                 tertiary educational institutions agree to have the HARNET
                 Internet link be installed at the Chinese University of
                 Hong Kong which also provides the resource to manage this
                 link.

HKIX           : Hong Kong Internet Exchange. HKIX is a project initiated
                 and operated by Chinese University of Hong Kong. The aim
                 is to interconnect the ISPs in Hong Kong so that intra-Hong
                 Kong traffic can be exchanged locally without routing
                 through US.

                 ISPs with links to HKIX will be much faster in accessing
                 other joined local networks, as otherwise data may have to
                 be routed to the US first, then come back to Hong Kong,
                 which means a waste of both time and bandwidth.

                 HARNET is also reachable via HKIX.

Online Storage : Usually if users store extra MB than the given disk quota,
                 an average will be taken over the usage over the month and
                 users will be charged accordingly. Generally storage is not
                 a problem for most users, especially if the connection is
                 via SLIP/PPP.

Own Int'l Link : Whether the ISP has its own international link to the
                 Internet outside Hong Kong. Some ISPs rely on other Hong
                 Kong ISPs which has links outside Hong Kong to route
                 through their data, instead of having their own link. Note
                 that relatively these ISPs will have slower performance as
                 a result in accessing overseas sites. And those ISPs who are
                 providing such routing services to other ISPs will also
                 suffer from slower performance than it appears could have
                 been, as the amount of data being transferred through them
                 is increased.

PNETS fee      : Under Hong Kong law, being an ISP has to hold a Public
                 Non-Exclusive Telecommmunication Service (PNETS)
                 Licence, which costs only $750 a year. But Hong Kong
                 Telecom levies a royalty of $5.4 per hour per user. For
                 whatever reasons some ISPs haven't been charged on that
                 extra $5.4 per hour royalty yet. However, when Telecom
                 begins to charge, this additional costs will inevitably be
                 transferred to customers. So be warned about this as users
                 of these ISPs may have to pay more later.

                 For some ISPs which has "PNETS fee included" means the fee
                 they are charging already includes Telecom royalty, ie
                 you don't have to know what it is all about to avoid
                 further confusion. But although the fee is said to be
                 included, it doesn't mean the ISPs are _in fact_ paying
                 the fee to Telecom.

                 ISPs having their modem diaup number starting with 300 
                 (ie. 300x-xxxx) are already paying PNETS fee.
