In a milestone for Singapore’s 5G rollout, local telco Singtel announced on Feb 3 that it has brought 5G indoors at VivoCity, the Republic’s largest mall. The launch represents the first step in Singtel’s expanding in-building coverage to other popular malls like Ngee Ann City and Bugis Junction over the next few months. This is Singapore’s first commercial indoor 5G coverage. 

“We are pleased to deliver our 5G speed advantage indoors at VivoCity, just as more people are going out with their friends and family. Singtel 5G provides reliable connectivity and a consistent high-speed experience, making a real difference for our customers whether they are surfing, streaming videos or gaming while on the go,” says Gan Siok Hoon, Singtel’s managing director, sales & marketing, consumer Singapore.

The indoor 5G network runs at a 3.5GHz spectrum and advanced small cell radio dot technology. Users can enjoy ultra-fast surfing speeds of up to 1.2 Gigabytes per second and a consistent and seamless 5G experience. These speeds, claims the local telco, make the Singtel offering Singapore’s fastest 5G network.
