Singapore boasts an elaborate inter network, with around 100% of internet households having broadband access. The government has continued to maintain a strong commitment to making broadband access widely available to the population and at the same time lifting the overall quality of the access. Apart from the excellent infrastructure available to support broadband services, the administration and the operators have put a major effort into expanding these services and increasing the ease of access. One such initiative being the Next Generation National Infocomm Infrastructure and the related Next Generation National Broadband Network. The government launched its Next Generation National Broadband Network (NGNBN) over a decade ago and the rollout is now essentially complete. It based on a combination of fibre-to-the-home (FttH) and wireless networks. Wireless broadband has seen strong growth over the past few years driven by the migration to the NGNBN. By 2018 wireless broadband penetration is predicted to reach over 200% Optical fibre broadband also has seen strong growth as customers migrate to the NGNBN's optical fibre network. xDSL on the other hand has seen a decrease in usage and cable modem broadband also has been experiencing declining subscriber numbers. Slow growth in the fixed broadband market is predicted over the next five years in a mature and saturated market. Market penetration is predicted to increase moderately by 2022.
