SINGAPORE (Nov 15): NetLink Trust says in an update at 7.02pm on Friday that some telecoms service providers are still experiencing service difficulties although most of the damaged cables have been restored.

“As a result, the estimated time of full restoration has been revised to early tomorrow morning (November 16, 2018),” says NetLink Trust who adds that restoration works are ongoing.

The service disruption which started at around 2.50pm Wednesday was caused by a contractor when he severed a number of fibre cables while performing construction works along Tampines Avenue 9 for a third party.

About 10,000 users in the eastern parts of Singapore -- Pasir Ris, Tampines, Changi and Loyang -- were affected by the disruption to fibre broadband services, said NetLink Trust in a statement later that day.  

NetLink Trust says it takes a serious view of such disruption in services caused by errant third parties and will take all necessary actions against the errant contractor.

mm2 Asia cut to 'hold' by Maybank despite latest box office showing

SINGAPORE (Mar 26): Maybank Kim Eng would rather wait for mm2 Asia’s cinema division to make disclosures in its fiscal-year-end reporting before changing its forecasts. Good showing at the box office by mm2’s latest movie “More Than Blue” has led to another tie-up with Fox Networks Group Asia which has likely driven the stock’s recent re-rating. Unfortunately, mm2’s Cathay cinema acquisition “has clouded all interim visibility of its production business and overall prospects” due to leverage. And although upcoming fiscal-year results could provide visibility of all par....
