Singtel launches its 5G Standalone (SA) network, offering customers early access to the most advanced 5G connectivity globally.
Compared to 4G, 5G SA delivers twice the responsiveness, 30% faster uploads, and strengthened authentication and encryption capability. With much greater bandwidth and near-instant responses, 5G SA will enable revolutionary applications like self-driving cars, real-time immersive entertainment, and massive IoT (Internet of Things) connections.
Singtel has teamed up with Samsung, its official 5G SA launch partner, to give selected customers early access to this next-generation mobile network. From today, customers can get a taste of Singtel’s 5G SA network on Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G handsets, running a Singtel-exclusive beta release of Samsung’s 5G SA software.
Customers can register their interest here to be one of the first customers to experience Singtel’s 5G SA network.
Customers with creative entries on how 5G will transform their lives will be selected to receive a “5G Power Up” kit that comprises:
- 5G SA SIM card
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G handset
- Samsung accessories
Singtel is the only telco in Singapore to roll out in-building 5G, covering popular malls such as VivoCity and Ngee Ann City, and will continue to expand its indoor 5G footprint in the coming months.
On the enterprise front, Singtel is focused on accelerating 5G innovation and 5G adoption, launching Genie, the world’s first portable 5G-in-a-box platform and expanding its 5G ecosystem with 5G Multi-access Edge Compute trials in collaboration with Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
All consumers in Singapore can trial 5G’s ultra-fast speeds and ultra-low latency at Singtel’s 5G experience zones in selected Singtel Shops, UNBOXED and UNBOXED Lite on Orchard Road.
