Telecommunications and Internet in Singapore:


Singapore Broadband Market Report
Singapore was the first country in the world to deploy ADSL commercially when SingTel launched its Magix service in November 1997. However, broadband in Singapore did not initially take off as expected after such an early start. Despite having lost the broadband lead to South Korea, Hong Kong and Japan, the last few years have seen Singapore move to rapidly build a substantial broadband base. The country is now well positioned to make its influence felt once again in this segment of the regional market, given its sound infrastructure and a new found commitment to developing its broadband capability. This report reviews the state of the broadband market in Singapore.

Singapore Broadcasting Report
For some years now Singapore’s TV broadcasting sector has been feeling the impact of convergence. In June 2000, the Ministry of Information and the Arts announced the liberalisation of the media industry in Singapore, signalling that broadcasting operators could look at the telecommunications sector and telecommunications companies could look at the broadcasting sector. A new regulator for the sector, the Media Development Authority (MDA), was set up in 2003. There is no doubt that a slower Singapore economy has had a considerable impact on growth in the media sector. This report looks at the changes in the market and the impact on the major players and customers.


Singapore New Internet Economy
Singapore prides itself on the way it has embraced the Internet, aggressively adopting a leadership role in the Asia-Pacific region. One indicator, Internet awareness in the population, has been estimated to be approaching 100%. The Singapore Internet market has continued to develop in a vigorous manner, overcoming such factors as a sluggish economic period a few years back. This report looks at how Singapore has been facing up to the challenges and how, with the help of a favourable regulatory regime, it has been working to influence the direction the world is taking in going online. There is also some information on e-commerce activities in the island state.


Singapore Key Telecom Market Statistics and Regulatory Overviews
Singapore continues to maintain a positive outlook in the country’s telecommunications sector. The island state built a competitive telecoms market over the past three decades, aided by its geographical location and its excellent infrastructure. It was one of the first countries in the world to have a fully digital telephone network. This report looks at the ways in which this sector is now growing in Singapore and how it has been assisted in its development by the government’s strong commitment to and bold action in the ongoing deregulation of the industry. It is noted that, as the local market saturates, the Singaporean telcos are looking offshore to expand and export their developed capabilities.


Singapore Telecommunications Infrastructure Report
Singapore’s reputation for a truly progressive telecommunications market over the past three decades has been built on its excellent infrastructure. While Singapore’s geographical situation has been of considerable advantage in putting its infrastructure in place, other factors, including the government’s strong commitment to developing telecommunications, have certainly helped. Singapore was one of the first countries in the world to have a fully digital telephone network. This report looks at Singapore’s domestic and international infrastructure. Singapore is a natural hub for submarine cables in the Asia Pacific region. As well as submarine cables, International infrastructure includes a number of satellite networks.

Singapore Mobile Communications Major Operators Report
The energy of the mobile market in Singapore is reflected in the character of its three major operators - SingTel, StarHub and M1. There is strong competition between these innovative service providers. StarHub, which had the lowest market share, has been growing strongly, catching up and passing M1. With the slowing in overall subscriber growth, considerable effort had gone into value-added products and services. All three operators were awarded 3G licences in mid-2001 and launched services in the first half of 2005, having met the mandatory launch of pilot 3G services by end-2004. This report looks at the three big operators in Singapore’s mobile market.


Singapore eCommerce Overview
December 15, 2009 - Singapore retail sales fell in October for a 13th consecutive month but the drop was smaller than the previous month, amid an economy poised to grow for a third quarter.

Retail sales fell 4.4 percent from a year earlier after dropping 12 percent in Spetember and 4.7 percent in August, according to the Singapore Statistics Department. Sales rose a seasonally adjusted 6 percent from September.

Singapore’s economy has rebounded from recession and is trying to build momentum for next year, when the government expects growth of as much as 5 percent. Gross domestic product expanded an annualized 14 percent in the July to September period, the second straight quarter of growth after a year of contraction.

Sales of motor vehicles in October fell 15 percent, jewelry and watches dropped 4.7 percent, and furniture and household equipment sales slid 2.4 percent, the department said. Department store sales rose 1 percent.
