How does fibre broadband work?

Fibre broadband uses a network of fibre optic cables to deliver high-speed data. That means fewer lags, more streaming and more devices connected to the same network. Before considering a Singtel broadband plan, check if your home may be reached by fibre broadband through a quick google search. If you have any queries regarding Singtel fibre broadband and the installation process, you can visit your nearest Singtel shop or give a quick call to Singtel’s customer service office.
