Digitimes Research: Singapore tops ASEAN countries in LTE subscriptions
Benson Wu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 13 August 2014]

Fifteen mobile telecom carriers in seven ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries had started LTE commercial operations as of the end of the second quarter of 2014, and Singapore ranked first with LTE subscribers accounting for nearly 30% of all mobile communication subscriptions, according to Digitimes Research.

In the whole ASEAN market, LTE and WiMAX subscribers accounted for only 1.3% of mobile communications subscribers at the end of 2013, compared to 70.5% for 2G and 28.2% for 3G, Digitimes Research indicated.

In view of decreasing revenues due to market saturation, SingTel, StarHub and M1, three mobile telecom carriers in Singapore, have made large investments to set up LTE networks, with network coverage much higher than that in the other six ASEAN countries. In addition to data communications, SingTel launched VoLTE (voice over LTE) services in May 2014.
