Towards an Infocomm-Enabled Future with Next Gen NBN

The Next Gen NBN will reinforce the status of Singapore as an infocomm hub and open new doors to economic opportunities, business growth and social vibrancy.

A pervasive and ultra-high speed broadband network will position Singapore for an infocomm-enabled future. This infrastructure will be a critical national enabler to spur the development of new knowledge-based sectors, such as research and development, interactive digital media and creative industries. It will catalyse development and deployment of innovative interactive digital services to homes, schools and businesses.

The Next Gen NBN will reinforce the status of Singapore as an infocomm hub and open new doors to economic opportunities, business growth and social vibrancy. It is envisioned that this will eventually provide a nationwide ultra-high speed broadband access of 1Gbps and more, to all physical addresses including homes, schools, government buildings, businesses, hospitals and NBAPs (Non Building Access Points).
