FACTBOX-Key data on C&W HKT<0008.HK>/PCCW<1186.HK>


   HONG KONG, Feb 29 (Reuters) - Internet upstart Pacific
 Century CyberWorks Ltd (PCCW) emerged the victor in a hard-fought
 battle to acquire Hong Kong's largest telecommunications company,
 Cable & Wireless HKT <0008.HK>.
     HKT, the Hong Kong unit of London-listed Cable & Wireless Plc
 , had also been the subject of a merger offer from
 79.7-percent government-owned Singapore Telecommunications
 . SingTel gave up the pursuit on Tuesday.
     A merger of PCCW and HKT would bring together one of the
 territory's oldest and largest utility companies and one of its
 youngest and most dynamic Internet investment firms.  The merged
 company would have a market capitalisation of US$70 billion.
