Singapore Delays High-Speed Internet License Auction
Posted: 03-Jan-2001 [Source: Bloomberg]

[Government says potential bidders asking for more time to study auction procedures.]

by Natalia Olynec, Singapore -- "Singapore delayed an auction of licenses for high-speed Internet access on mobile phones as operators become wary of paying for permits and networks for services with unproven demand.

"The government postponed the auction of licenses for the service called 3G to April or May from February, saying companies requested more time to study auction procedures. Analysts blamed the delay on waning demand from global operators saddled with debt from auctions in Europe.

"Singapore isn't a critical market and it will cost twice as much for a new entrant to install a 3G network relative to an incumbent," said Gillem Tulloch, director of Asean Telecoms research at Nomura Singapore Ltd. "There's obviously 3G fatigue in Europe."
