The broadband access divide still exists after years of broadband development
Restricted by the factors such as policy, cost, geographic environment, and fiber resource, the divide still exists in the home broadband market although broadband access has developed rapidly around the world. Some homes are able to enjoy stable and reliable 100M, multi-100M and even Gigabit broadband services over the fibers connected to their homes, while other homes are not served with broadband due to the lack of infrastructures. It is estimated that approximately one billion homes will be unable to access fixed broadband in the next two to three years.

5G, the next generation of mobile broadband technology allows for faster mobile broadband speeds (up to 20Gbps), faster response timings (possibly as low as 1 millisecond) and multi-device support. With licenses to roll out 5G in Singapore on the market, three bids from Singapore’s four major telcos were submitted at the closing of the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA)’s Call For Proposal (CFP) on 17th February 2020.
In 2003, the world was overcome with a crippling fear of the SARS virus that claimed the lives of more than 700 people worldwide. Almost a decade later, the global community was faced with yet another paralysing health crisis known as MERs or camel flu. Although this disease mostly affected a large portion of the Arabian Peninsula and eventually spread to parts of Southeast Asia and North America, almost 1000 people were reported to have perished from it; around 30% higher than the death toll for SARS. This time, we are being forced to grapple with a deadlier and more aggressive form of a similar respiratory disease known as novel coronavirus or COVID-19; a virus that was first identified in Wuhan, China and one that has already racked up a death toll numbering in the thousands and counting.
