Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) officially launched its LTE mobile broadband service with coverage in the central financial district and other areas that experience high data usage such as: Shenton Way, Orchard, City Hall, Marina Bay, River Valley, Tanglin, Newton, Novena, Kallang, Rochor, Outram, Tanjong Pagar, Jurong West, Boon Lay, Bukit Panjang, Bedok and Changi. SingTel is also providing in-door LTE service in major shopping malls across Singapore.

Top downlink speed on the SingTel network is a theoretical 75 Mbps, although the carrier says most users will get 3.4 Mbps to 12 Mbps downlink. SingTel also notes that the LTE network is delivering one-fifth the latency of its 3G network.
