Verizon has completed a fiber-optic network expansion project in Singapore, which increases the company's network coverage and doubling capacity for enterprise customers.
Located primarily in the northern and western parts of Singapore, the new fiber network gives customers access to strategic network facilities including submarine-cable landing stations and data centers.
The complex fiber construction project was a joint effort between Verizon and M1, a provider of mobile, broadband and fixed communications services in Singapore. Teams from both companies worked together for two years to complete the network build.
“Singapore’s geographic location makes the country a strategic gateway between Europe and Asia for our global customers,” said Yali Liu, Verizon executive director of global network planning. “Our expanded network in Singapore is an essential communications platform customers need today and in the future.”
Verizon’s new Singapore fiber-optic ring now extends 160 kilometers and significantly increases network coverage for enterprise and government customers.
