OpenNet increases Fibre Installation capacity again. In July, they made a statement that their capacity will be increased to 3,100 in August. Now, about 2 months later, they announced again an increase from 3,100 to 3,500 connections per week.
This is after their quarterly review. This should be good news for everyone. More information after the break.
OpenNet Further Increases Fibre Installation Capacity
Singapore, 22 October 2012 – OpenNet has increased its installation capacity by almost 15% from 3,100 to 3,550 connections per week following a review of its existing capacity utilisation. The increase is effective from 22 October 2012.
“After the quarterly review, OpenNet is happy to increase its capacity to meet the growing demand for fibre installation. OpenNet will continue to monitor and adjust its capacity to meet changes in demand,” says Mr Daniel Ho, Director of Business Development and Communications from OpenNet.
OpenNet’s fibre subscriber base reached the 220,000 mark in September 2012 – more than doubling in only 9 months since hitting the 100,000 mark in January 2012.
“With the penetration of fibre broadband reaching 20% of households in Singapore, OpenNet and its partners need to step up on education and marketing initiatives to reach out to a wider audience beyond the early adopters. Communicating the benefits of fibre over ADSL and Cable is especially critical in a market dominated by traditional broadband services. The introduction of innovative fibre-based service offerings tailored to specific customer needs will strengthen the case for fibre,” added Daniel.
OpenNet will continue to work closely with its stakeholders to cater for the continuing growth in demand for fibre services.
