Singapore, 12 November 2003 -- Pacific Internet (PacNet) and StarHub Cable Vision (SCV) today announced that they have successfully completed the agreement on Local Broadband Access Services for Cable Open Access in Singapore. Singapore is the first country in Asia and among the first in the world to have an agreement for cable open access. Under this agreement, SCV will supply the access infrastructure for PacNet’s own Cable Unlimited 1500 service.
Said Mr Ong Teck Guan, Managing Director of PacNet’s Singapore operations, "This is yet another milestone development for PacNet. Cable Broadband is a popular service and we are excited to be able to add this to our suite of broadband access services."
"Wholesale has always been an important business for StarHub. The StarHub Cable Open Access Agreement with PacNet opens up a new horizon of opportunities for both parties moving forward, as well as the beginning of a mutually beneficial partnership, not only for Cable Open Access, but also future business collaborations. StarHub and PacNet are committed to develop and grow the cable broadband industry as viable alternative to ADSL access in Singapore, to bring greater choice and more innovative services to consumers," said Ms Sarah Froggatt, Vice President of Domestic Wholesale at StarHub.
Details of PacNet's cable access offering will be made known when the company launches the service this month.
