In a recently published press release, Singtel has just shared that they will be offering “a whopping” 10Gbps fibre broadband service to residential customers in Singapore starting this month.
“We made a commitment to our customers to bring them the best network innovations, the very latest technologies for work and play. We recognise that residential customers are using greater bandwidth and requiring faster speeds for their online activities. Our 10Gbps Fibre Home Bundle will offer households the fastest fibre broadband experience in Singapore,” said Mr Goh Seow Eng, MD, Home, Consumer Singapore, Singtel.
The increased internet speed allows you to stream multiple 4K ultra HD videos and operate bandwidth intensive applications like 3D TV. On top of that, this prepares you for 8K UHD content streaming, which is the current highest ultra high definition television (UHDTV) .
The price point? At S$189 per month, you get a 10G optical network router, a wireless Dual-Band AC router, NLT installation and Singtel weekday installation, a 4G Mobile Broadband 500MB, and for a limited period, a pair of WiFi Mesh devices worth S$240.
Other existing offerings from Singtel include the 1Gbps as well as the 300M fibre broadband service. The new service is 10 times faster than the existing offerings by Singtel.
If you wish to subscribe to the new service, you can register your interest online from today onwards until February 15.
One of its fastest growing competitor, My Republic is offering 1Gbps fibre broadband service, albeit at a cheaper price than Singtel.
So, how many of you will upgrade to Singtel’s new 10Gbps fibre broadband service? Would you pay almost 2 times more the monthly fee to enjoy 10 times more the speed?
