SingTel lays out FTTH service pricing

Starting this month, Singapore's broadband consumers will be able to access SingTel's new Fiber to the Home service with an aggressive price plan and of course higher speeds in a market typically known for slow speeds and high prices.

This week the service provider introduced a basic and a premium service package. Priced at $63.40 a month, the introductory package comes with 150 Mbps/75 Mbps connection and 15 Mbps international link. For $10 more a month, users can get the premium package with 200 Mbps (100 Mbps upload, 25 Mbps international) speeds for about $70.

Previously, Singtel offered a 100 Mbps/10 Mbps service package for about $64.00 a month.

Singapore itself has made some major strides in the broadband access arena with its own nationwide FTTH network, which includes StarHub as the OpCo (operating company), SingTel as the NetCo (network company). By the end of the year, Singapore expects the network will reach 60 percent of the country's homes and every home by 2012. When this network is complete, Singapore will unseat Japan and South Korea as the world broadband leader.
