Megaport to Lay Foundations in Singapore with Dark Fibre Network Rollout

New High-Speed Dark Fibre Network Will Meet Current and Future Needs of Data Generating Businesses with Specialised, Dedicated Higher Bandwidth Services.

Today we announced that we will commence the rollout of the initial phase of a high-speed dark fibre network in Singapore over the next 6-12 months, with an initial investment of SG$20 million. Subsequent phases of the network could see Megaport invest between SG$40 and SG$50 million in the network over the next three years. Megaport’s dark fibre network is designed to offer carriers and enterprise customers direct access to the high bandwidth potential of fibre optic networks at less than half the cost of similar services currently available in the Singapore market. The network will also underpin Megaport’s managed network in Singapore.

“Organisations in Singapore are generating and consuming ever-increasing amounts of data at rates never envisaged years ago, leading to huge demand for high-speed bandwidth to connect to data centres for disaster recovery or mission critical applications,” said Bevan Slattery, Chief Executive Officer of Megaport. “While the Next Generation National Broadband Network (NGNBN) is an excellent platform for the delivery of broadband services to homes and businesses, many of the carrier and enterprise clients need specialised, dedicated higher bandwidth services.
