Prysmian Group, a specialist in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, has been chosen to support the development of the new broadband network in Singapore.
Prysmian Group has been awarded two new contracts from two separate companies in Singapore, Singtel and NetLink Trust worth a total of around S$ 35 million (€23m) for the supply of optical fibre cables to these two different entities.
“These important awards cement our leading position as a valued partner for the telecom sector in the region”, said Toni Bosch, Vice President Telecom Solutions at Prysmian Group. “Most of the broadband network in Singapore supports connection speeds up to 100Mbps, and Singtel, NLT Network understand the importance of installing a comprehensive optical network with reliable technology as the foundation for a Next Generation National Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN). This will allow connections to perform 100 times faster than the speeds the country currently experiences and, with the use of optical fibre, a higher broadband speed will be delivered more efficiently and at a lower cost.”
