About NetLink Trust
NetLink Trust owns and operates Singapore’s national high-quality, ultra-high speed fibre network. This fibre network is the foundation of Singapore’s Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN), part of Singapore’s Smart Nation framework.
In October 2014, NetLink Trust successfully integrated all passive infrastructure, which includes the central offices, ducts and manhole network, as well as the capabilities of fibre network design, build and management. As the first layer in the three-tiered fibre industry model, the integration aims at building synergies and improving service standards to all downstream operators, and ultimately, to the end-users of fibre services.
We are committed to open and equal access and to working closely with the operators and the regulator. We believe in a fair and neutral environment for all operators to enable unbounded innovations and services on this ultra-high speed fibre network.
