ViewQwest, Singapore’s premium boutique Internet service provider, has announced the commercial availability of 2Gbps fibre broadband.

“Consumers are increasingly using their home networks for higher bandwidth activities – from downloading large files to streaming TV shows to even running their own businesses from home. We hear them, we understand how they use the Internet, and we want to offer them the fastest residential Internet connectivity available in the world. I am proud that my team has developed a plug-and-play methodology, enabling us to scale from our limited trials to being able to offer 2Gbps to all consumers in Singapore,” said Vignesa Moorthy, CEO, ViewQwest.

The new ViewQwest 2Gbps Fibernet broadband bundle is available in single network and multi-network options. Bundles continue to include ViewQwest’s Freedom VPN, which allows customers access to geo-restricted international streaming sites such as Netflix, Hulu, PPTV, Viki, BBC iPlayer, ITV and Tonton. Also included in the bundles are ViewQwest TV, an Android-based media player that connects the TV to the Internet. ViewQwest also includes add-ons like OneVoice, a residential fixed line that provides free unlimited incoming and outgoing local calls.

ViewQwest Fibernet broadband bundles include:

· The default ViewQwest 2Gbps Fibernet Bundle, Single Network for S$89.95 per month, including ViewQwest TV, modem/router rental and OneVoice as an option

· ViewQwest 2Gbps Fibernet Bundle, Multi-Network for S$99.95 per month, which allows users to set up two networks, one dedicated to critical work or business for the home office, and the second for daily tasks for example. ViewQwest TV and modem rental are included, while OneVoice is an option.

Existing 1Gbps ViewQwest subscribers can re-contract free of charge to either of the 2Gbps plans, which will be publicly available from 16 March 2015. All ViewQwest plans are available via the ViewQwest website, via the ViewQwest experiential booth at Sim Lim Square Level 1 and at ViewQwest authorised resellers.

Visitors to the IT Show from 19 to 22 March 2015 at Suntec Convention Centre, level 4 can try out the ViewQwest speeds for themselves. ViewQwest promotions for new subscribers at the IT Show 2015 include:
