We would catagorize the plans on offer as either being designed for the:

Those that rate by the square feet are typically more of a mass market product, designed to simplify the calculation process, as most Hong Kong people know to a square inch the size of their apartment. These products tend to be lower priced than the more traditionally rated products and to have correspondingly more restrictive cover. Eg: no cover for iPhones or iPads etc.

See table below for what we see as the main areas of difference. Call us on 2530 2530 for more information.
