SINGAPORE (Oct 21): Singapore is looking to increase the number of 5G networks to four, from the two previously planned, according to Minister for Communications and Information S Iswaran.

Besides the two nationwide 5G networks previously announced, the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) will issue the right to operate two localised 5G networks. These networks can serve a smaller area and will be focused on niche business needs such as operating equipment in smart factories or ports.

The announcement comes after a two-month public consultation on 5G, which concluded in July. IMDA also called for interested telcos to submit detailed proposals on their deployment plans by January 2020, with the intention of assigning 5G airwaves to two winning submissions by June 2020.
