StarHub has a new corporate vision – ‘inspiring digital innovation – for the best digital life has to offer’. We believe there are numerous opportunities to bring innovative services to market that enhance the way that people interact, their entertainment options, and their worklife.

Hubbing remains our over-arching business strategy and we are taking the Hubbing concept even further. We intend to broaden engagement with our customers, allowing us more insights into what customers need and want.

Chairman’s Statement highlights

In November, we announced a tie-up with leading insurer Prudential to launch a blockchain-based trading platform, where our customers can transact more efficiently with their own suppliers and customers.

We have also inked partnerships with several companies to provide ‘robot-as-a-service’ solutions. These solutions can streamline business processes and optimise efficiency for better productivity.

We have been rapidly improving our cyber security capabilities. For example, we are doubling the size of our Security Operations Centres with certified cyber security analysts and researchers.

The customer experience enhancement journey in this dynamic landscape is an on-going one. What we have built and implemented thus far is a cumulation of the past few years of planning and execution. We trust the experience will get only better ahead.

Beyond Entertainment
Hub+ Experiences

The concept of Hub+ goes beyond entertainment. Industry silos are breaking down, some more clearly than others. We have built familiarity and trust with our customers. From this base, we are adding a network of strategic business partners.

This network, which we are building rapidly, is one that gives our customers greater variety, better offers, more relevant services and much more convenience.

With our own robust fixed network and ever-improving mobile coverage, we are well positioned to provide Smart Nation services.

We have formed alliances with like-minded industry partners and have made acquisitions to beef up our capabilities in the fast-growing area of cyber security. Before we become part of a Smart Nation, we want to be a Smart Company first.
