Singapore to get WiMax service next year

Pacific Internet says it plans to offer commercial WiMax service in Singapore starting in 2006. The Singapore-based ISP notes that it has secured the rights for 30MHz of spectrum in the 2.5GHz band from Singapore's Infocomm Development Authority. The spectrum rights cost the company a little over $1.2 million. Pacific Internet reports it will use the spectrum to offer wireless broadband and fixed wireless services. The company already provides cable and DSL Internet access services to businesses and consumers in Singapore. The company plans to begin WiMax trials later this year.
