Singtel has announced that it will be offering a 10Gbps fibre broadband service to residential customers in Singapore this month, following the launch of the pilot phase to a selected group of customers last year.
Leveraging on its Next Generation 10GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network), this first-of-its-kind service will allow users to enjoy bandwidth-intensive activities such as downloading, gaming and streaming at the same time - without having to compromise on connection quality.
For instance, a two-hour Full HD movie can be downloaded within merely 90 seconds, while a two-hour 4K quality movie can be downloaded in six minutes using a 10Gbps connection.
The service, which also features four 1Gbps ports, can serve as a sophisticated home networking solution for multi-user environments such as home offices and large households. This means individuals working from home can conduct multiple video-conferences, file transfer sessions and even run a home business without compromising on connectivity and bandwidth; while families can indulge in simultaneous web-surfing, video streaming and download music with great ease.
To enhance their 10Gbps experience, customers can simply set up Singtel's latest WiFi Mesh to improve wireless performance and connectivity in their homes. Through client steering technologies, WiFi Mesh ensures consistent bandwidth at high speeds and increased coverage, providing robust wireless connectivity for data-demanding applications.
"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 Goh Seow Eng, MD, Home, Consumer Singapore, Singtel.
Singtel's 10Gbps Fibre Home Bundle is priced at S$189 per month and includes a 10G optical network router, a wireless Dual-Band AC router, NLT installation and Singtel weekday installation, a 4G Mobile Broadband 500MB; as well as a complimentary pair of WiFi Mesh devices worth S$240 for a limited period.
Keen customers can register their interest at www.singtelshop.com/10GbpsFibre from now until February 15, 2016.
