Hong Kong’s telecommunications service provider HKT has partnered with banking consortium JETCO to expand NFC-based mobile payments services.

Under the terms of the deal, the service will be available to PCCW-HKT customers who have credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, and China UnionPay—issued by 30 JETCO member banks.

HKT and JETCO will adopt Single Wire Protocol-SIM (SWP-SIM) cards that serve as the secure element for storing payment applications running on a mobile phone.

The service is scheduled for launch in Q1 of 2014.
