By Digital News Asia November 13, 2014
- First 2Gbps fibre in the world outside of Japan
- Streamlines existing fibre broadband price plans
FIBRE broadband operator ViewQwest announced its capability to offer 2Gbps fibre broadband, claiming this was the first in the world outside of Japan, and the fastest residential Internet connectivity in Singapore.
The 2Gbps fibre broadband will be undergoing limited trials with a select group of customers from now until end-2014, and will be commercially available in early 2015, the company said in a statement.
“We know [our customers] demand the fastest Internet speeds and reliability, and ViewQwest is proud to be the first in Singapore – and in the world outside of Japan – to have the capability to offer 2Gbps fibre broadband,” said ViewQwest chief executive officer Vignesa Moorthy.
The company said it has also streamlined its existing packages into two price plans that simplify options for consumers.
ViewQwest is a Singapore Internet service provider (ISP) established in 2001 with a commercial and residential client base.
As a facilities based operator, it owns cable systems between Singapore and Malaysia, as well as its own undersea cable between Singapore and Indonesia.
