With a population of over 5.7 million, Singapore is a sovereign city state located in southeast Asia at the very southern tip of the Malay peninsula. Singapore consists of one main island and 62 islets. 17.4 million tourists visited Singapore in 2017 and the tourist industry is a critical part of the economy but alongside tourism, Singapore has developed itself into a global commerce, transport and finance hub. The World Economic Forum has recognised the state as the most technology-ready nation and the country holds the third highest GDP per capita in the world. This highly developed market economy has a reputation for being a friendly place to do business, innovative, free and competitive.
It’s no surprise to discover that Singapore is also a world leader in telecoms and the government has been very focused on building a very competitive and progressive regulatory environment for the sector. As in many other nations across Asia, Singapore is dominated by the mobile sector with very high penetration rates in terms of mobile device ownership. The Internet is most widely access via mobile networks and the government has launched and completed a Next Generation Broadband Network which has improved connectivity and broadband speeds. Singapore is being positioned as a ‘Smart Nation’ which will see the use of data and analytics to encourage further economic growth and to benefit society as a whole. Singaporeans love the Internet and spend a lot of time on their mobile devices. In 2016, over 82% of the population had access to the Internet. 4G is gradually being rolled out across the country and 5G is most definitely on the horizon.
Though Singapore is a futuristic country and it has excellent broadband access, there are still some parts of the population that do not yet have connectivity. For Singapore to take its broadband penetration rate still further, it can turn to satellite to make the difference.
