SINGAPORE -- From tomorrow, Singapore will become the first country in the world to commercially launch 100Mbps residential broadband services nation-wide, as StarHub marks another milestone with its deployment of DOCSIS 3.0 technology.

To ensure that all MOL customers can experience the full capabilities of DOCSIS 3.0 and access ultra-high broadband speeds immediately, StarHub has combined this network upgrade with VELOCITY, StarHub’s content-collaboration programme that makes it easy for companies providing online content and services to host their applications in Singapore.

Combining the DOCSIS 3.0 access with the VELOCITY programme, StarHub has created a dual-mode network profile for each MOL cable modem connection:

1. A full-speed profile, for accessing locally-hosted content such as those provided by VELOCITY partners;
2. A prescribed-speed profile, for accessing other Internet content hosted overseas at the price point customers prefer;

Based on StarHub’s on-going residential broadband market research, this dual-mode network profile is used to better serve the needs of all MOL customers.

With this development, StarHub will simultaneously introduce the following across-the-board upgrade to all its MOL broadband plans, effective tomorrow.

SPEED BOOST FOR SUBSCRIBERS WITH DOCSIS 1.1 CABLE MODEM

Customers of MOL Express (formerly MOL 6000), FlexiSurf Express (formerly FlexiSurf 6000) and MOL Premium (formerly MOL 12000), using a DOCSIS 1.1 cable modem, will be able to experience broadband speeds of up to 32Mbps via the full-speed profile, when they access popular websites and web-based services hosted within StarHub’s Velocity programme. Concurrently, broadband speeds to access non-Velocity sites will be based on the customer’s subscribed plan via the prescribed-speed profile (i.e. up to 6Mbps for MOL Express and FlexiSurf Express and up to 12Mbps for MOL Premium).

MOL Ultimate users will get two network profiles – full-speed and prescribed speed – that will give them a speed boost of up to 32Mbps regardless of whether they access Velocity or non-Velocity websites.

EXPERIENCE ULTRA-HIGH BROADBAND WITH 100Mbps-ready cable modem

More exciting news for MOL customers, however, is the fact that with the purchase of a 100Mbps-ready cable modem, any MOL customer can experience ultra-high broadband speeds of up to 100Mbps.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
