- Also teams up with Aftershock PC to offer customised PCs
- 10Gbps line makes use of Metro Ethernet technology
‘BOUTIQUE’ Internet service provider ViewQwest Pte Ltd has announced that its 10Gbps consumer fibre broadband service is now available to all households in Singapore at S$218 (US$157) per month.
In a statement, ViewQwest said it is also partnering homegrown PC-maker Aftershock PC to build specially customised PCs with all the necessary components that can take advantage of the 10Gbps line.
ViewQwest’s 10Gbps line makes use of Metro Ethernet technology which offers symmetrical 10Gbps upstream and downstream speeds, unlike rival GPon solutions which offer 10Gbps downlinks but only approximately 2Gbps up, the company declared.
The new ViewQwest Black 10Gbps broadband plan comes with a “business-class service” which includes a dedicated 24/7 customer support phone line as well as premium next-business day on-site support, it said.
Members will also get a host of exclusive deals including S$200 (US$144) off the exclusive customised Aftershock Boost, a 10Gbps-ready PC, and an additional 10% discount on all gadgets sold on ViewQwest’s e-shop.
The Aftershock Boost will be available from S$2,800 (US$2,018) upwards.
“We aim to go beyond to provide a hassle-free end-to-end experience for our customers – from signup to aftersales support,” said ViewQwest chief executive officer Vignesa Moorthy (pic).
“Knowing that we are strategically aligned with Aftershock PC, we are confident about translating this partnership into value-added service for our customers,” he added.
Aftershock PC technical director and founder Marcus Wee said, “We are excited how this partnership is naturally complementary and how this will affect the quality of broadband service in Singapore, and take it to higher standards.”
