SINGAPORE - An agreement between Starhub and 1-Net Singapore will see that customers of the Singapore-ONE broadband network get a more flexible scheme for their bandwith connections.

Through this agreement, StarHub offers direct Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) port connections of 2 Mbps and 34Mbps in addition to standard industry packages of 45 Mbps and 155 Mbps.

These lower bandwidth connections are not currently available for Singapore-ONE customers.

This wider range of bandwidth packages comes with a multi-tier pricing scheme that allows customers to select the bandwidth that they'd require according to their needs.

"Through this partnership, we will be able to help business customers better manage the costs associated with gaining access to Singapore ONE's broadband network," says Richard Lee, vice president, business markets, StarHub.

"As the broadband exchange of Singapore, this agreement will provide our customers an even wider range of bandwidth connection packages," echoed Gregory Chia, chief operating officer, 1-Net Singapore. " Furthermore, both 1-Net and StarHub customers will enjoy and benefit from the seamless interconnection between the two networks."

Concurrently, the two companies will offer bundled services that includes:

  • End-to-end ATM connection linking the company's network of domestic offices
  • High-speed ATM connections to international locations
  • Direct high-speed access to StarHub Internet.

Starhub is one of three major info-communication service providers in Singapore. It owns and operates a nation-wide system of integrated fibre-based broadband network.

1-Net Singapore provides the infrastructure of Singapore ONE, operating a nation-wide core network of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) switches to facilitate the delivery of broadband multimedia services.

Among its other services, 1-Net provides ATM direct connections, server co-locations, and web hosting services. It has over 200 multinationals and local companies actively using Singapore ONE to deliver interactive, multimedia applications and services.
