SingTel moves to boost mobile data speed in crowded locations
SingTel says faster mobile internet connection in crowded places is on the card for its customers.
To make that happen, it's rolling out small cell technology at some 20 sites, including concert venues, malls, commercial and residential buildings.
The telco said it's carrying out this work progressively, and intends to complete it in three to four months.
Working hand-in-hand with small cell technology is a mobile network management solution called self-organising networks.
This software technology, which is already in place, allows slack network capacity in one area to be dynamically reallocated to ease demand elsewhere.
The telco said with both enhancements, mobile internet access for its subscribers should be up to 20 per cent faster at the 20 selected sites.
The chances of its customers getting a dropped call at these crowded locations should also reduce by as much as 40 per cent, it added.
