Afl telecommunications has just announced that it is rolling out its first 4G LTE network to the country’s 4G mobile market, and it has partnered with the government of Singapore to allow it to operate.
Afl says it will be deploying a total of 25,000 devices by the end of 2021, with 10,000 being in Singapore and the rest being rolled out globally.
The rollout is in line with Afl’s plans to build the Afl 4G network on the mainland.
The telco also announced that its first 3G network will be rolled out in 2021, and that the telco plans to roll out 4G in the next two years.
The company said that the rollout will be “completely free of charge” to customers.
AFL said it will use the money to purchase infrastructure for the network.
“We’ve been looking for ways to expand the availability of 4G technology in the country, and we’ve made great progress,” Afl Chief Executive Officer Jody Bowers said.
“Afl is the only carrier in Singapore to offer a nationwide 4G service, with an A-grade network.
We have a very good network, and I’m confident we can take the next step towards building the next generation of 4GO service in Singapore.”
The rollout will also be free of cost for Afl customers who are not on Afl Unlimited.
Afl’s rollout is a continuation of the telcos’ efforts to expand 4G services in Singapore, which has seen a number of large telecom companies like Telstra and BT launch their own 4G networks in the city.
Singapore’s population of about 60 million is over half of the countrys total population.
The telco says that it will work with the Singapore government and other telecoms to ensure that its network is robust.
“We will also work with Singapore’s telcos and other telcos to provide free access to the network for those who wish to access it,” it said.
The Afl network is currently operated by T-Mobile Singapore, and the company has recently announced that the network will also roll out to the UK and Germany.
