OpenNet Pte. Ltd. (OpenNet) is responsible for building, managing and operating a high quality and high-speed fibre network for Singapore’s Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN) initiative. This fibre network is the key foundation of the Next Gen NBN, which is part of the Intelligent Nation 2015 or iN2015 blueprint for galvanizing Singapore into a sophisticated city with seamless high-speed connectivity. OpenNet has delivered the state-of-the-art fibre platform as part of the iN2015 vision, with initial roll-out reaching 95% of households having been completed by 2012 and nationwide coverage achieved in 2013.
Established in 2008, OpenNet was formed as a joint venture between four partners – Axia NetMedia (Axia), Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel), Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) and Singapore Power Telecommunications (SPT). In 2013, NetLink Trust acquired 100% of OpenNet through its trustee manager CityNet Infrastructure Management Pte. Ltd. (CityNet), becoming the sole owner of OpenNet and the Next Gen NBN fibre network.
OpenNet is committed to providing an open access, non-discriminatory, and neutral environment for all downstream operators, enabling unbounded innovations and services on this ultra-high speed fibre network.
