Colt has launched its IP access service in Singapore, adding to a range of other offers the company has in the country. Colt says its coverage extends to approximately 90% of commercial buildings in Singapore.

Colt IP Access addresses the growing demand from multinational corporations in Singapore for reliable and competitive business-grade internet at speeds up to 1Gbps with dedicated access. There are options such as router rental and traffic reporting, said Colt.

Masato Hoshino, vice president and head of product management for Colt in Asia, said: “With Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative, we believe there is a huge demand for tech-enabled solutions, and our service is well-positioned to support this demand, by enabling companies in Singapore to experience the same high-quality connectivity and customer service as our customers in over 200 cities across the world.”

He said Colt has a commitment “to provide a portfolio of connectivity options that caters to the requirements of finance, technology, media, and other multinational corporations targeting growth opportunities in Singapore and beyond”.

UK-based Colt, which has been 100% owned by the US group Fidelity since 2015, bought Japanese operator KVH in 2014 for over $100 million. Fidelity was also the major investor in KVH, which was renamed Colt after the deal. The former KVH has networks in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea.
