Why do Homes need Fibre?

The internet is so deeply entrenched in our lives that we cannot imagine the inconvenience of having to go without:
Image
Video and music streaming services, and online gaming for our daily entertainment
Image

Video calling to enable working / learning from home or connecting with loved ones who are staying far away

Image

Home automation systems powered by Internet of Things (IoT) to remotely control connected devices when we are outside, for example, air-conditioners, refrigerators, lightings, coffee-maker, washing machines, etc.

Image

Smart home security systems to monitor our homes in real-time using CCTVs, fire and smoke alarms, motion detectors, etc.

Image

Home energy management systems to better manage and improve energy usage and performance through the use of real-time information and data

Image

Telehealth to deliver quality healthcare to an ageing population, enabling our elderly to remain independent in their own homes

All the above convenience is only made possible by the availability of the extensive ultra-high speed, reliable fibre broadband connections and fibre is the ideal medium to support the unabated growth of bandwidth requirements.

Benefits of Fibre

Fibre cables use light pulses to transmit data and they can transmit an almost infinite amount of data at scalable speed. They are also not susceptible to electromagnetic interferences and crosstalk issues.

Our coverage check portal is a free tool which allows you to check if your address is connected to the Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN).

How to get Fibre Broadband for Home?

NetLink Trust designs, builds, owns and operates the passive fibre network infrastructure of Singapore’s Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN). We provide an open, wholesale access of our fibre network to telecommunications operators, who then sell fibre broadband plans to you.

In this way, telecommunications operators can focus on offering innovative products and services to consumers without incurring high fixed costs.

What is the Standard Installation Process?

We only provide unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) surface trunking during fibre installation. You may choose to run the trunking along the floor skirting or along the cornice/ceiling. 

You can find out more about the standard installation process from our installation service guide, please download from the button below.

Do you need the Non-Standard Installation?

If you require non-standard installation (for example, concealment of fibre cable, use of non-standard trunking, etc.) of the fibre optic point at your home, please engage your own contractor to carry out such work.

The contractors in the list have informed NetLink Trust that they are able to perform works related to the installation of termination points or underground telecommunications works.

1. The contractors who appear in the list (Listed Contractors) have informed NetLink Trust that they are able to perform works related to the installation of termination points or underground telecommunications works, whichever applies (as of 20 September 2022). For the avoidance of doubt, home owners must directly enter into a separate contract with the Listed Contractors.

This list is provided for general information only, and the publication of this list is not intended to be and shall not be construed as an offer for services by either NetLink Trust or the Listed Contractors.

Getting the Most Out of Your Fiber Connectivity

Image
NetLink’s fibre network provides steady and reliable internet connection. To make to most out of your online experience, make sure your WiFi is working at its best.
 
One of the best ways to maximise connectivity throughout your home is via a WiFi mesh system.  To optimise the coverage of each node, place them in central areas of your residence, preferably in an elevated position, and avoid obstructions like walls, glass, mirrors, or any electronic or metallic objects.
 
For healthy connectivity, place your router away from signal-interfering equipment like cordless phones, old bluetooth devices, and microwave ovens, as they may operate on the same frequency and cause WiFi congestion.
