Singapore - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses
Singapore has earned the title of ‘the intelligent island’ after years of hard work, achieving high world rankings in most categories of technical advancement. The government’s vision for this began with its ‘Singapore One’ project, in what was the world’s first nationwide broadband network. This was carried through into the future with the progressive implementation of another government initiative, the ‘iN2015’ Master Plan.
The government launched its Next Generation National Broadband Network (NGNBN) over a decade ago and the rollout is now essentially complete. It based on a combination of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and wireless networks. The NGNBN has continued to form the basis of the government’s strategy broadband strategy and implementation.
Apart from the excellent infrastructure available to support broadband services, the administration and the operators have put a major effort into expanding these services and increasing the ease of access. One such initiative being the Next Generation National Infocomm Infrastructure and the related Next Generation National Broadband Network.
Slow growth in the fixed broadband market is predicted over the next five years in a mature and saturated market. Optical fibre broadband also has seen strong growth as customers migrate to the NGNBN’s fibre network. xDSL on the other hand has seen a decrease in usage and cable modem broadband also has been experiencing declining subscriber numbers.
Slow growth is predicted in the fixed broadband market to 2023 years in a mature and saturated market.
Both wireless broadband and fibre broadband will continue to be the fastest growing broadband segments.
Both DSL and cable modem will continue to experience declining subscriber numbers.
Data and analytics will play a critical role in Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative.

We wanted to extend our Com World Series of telecoms industry events to the South Pacific region and we were in urgent need of a partner in the region who could assist us with confirming the involvement of governments, telcos and more. Paul Budde and his team executed this perfectly. Paul also provided us with very high quality reports on every aspect of the project, including an amazingly thorough and actionable report on the conference presentations and discussion.
