StarHub picks Vyyo as new broadband partner

12 Mar 2007

Singapore telco StarHub has selected US-based broadband equipment provider Vyyo Inc to partner it in the development of next-generation infrastructure in the city-state. Vyyo will supply network gear to the operator which recently made the shortlist to develop high speed networks for Singapore’s proposed broadband superhighway.

On 5 March Singapore’s telecoms regulator the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA), announced that a total of twelve bidding groups, including Japan’s Nippon Telegraph & Telephone (NTT), Siemens, and local telcos Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) and StarHub, had all pre-qualified to bid for a contract to build a broadband network on the island. They will now provide feedback on the state’s proposals for the network ahead of the tender which is scheduled to get under way in mid-August. The government is hoping to deploy a nationwide network capable of delivering connection speeds of at least 1Gbps and covering 95% of homes and businesses by 2012; wireless connectivity will extend coverage to public places such as shopping malls and stations.
