Singtel has announced it is the official network partner of GPSS 2022, powering the experiences and festivities along Orchard Road and Clarke Quay with 5G. Having achieved nationwide 5G coverage, F1 race spectators, visitors to the various MICE events coinciding with the race, locals and tourists alike will be able to experience the high-speed connectivity and ultra-low latency of Singtel’s 5G network from anywhere on the island.
The first country to be fully covered by standalone 5G network, Singtel is taking the 5G experience to the next level at the GPSS 2022 and F1. In a world’s first, Singtel will be applying the most advanced form of 1 to support its digital app marketplace, CAST. With Sports Plus on Singtel CAST, race fans will be able to catch the entire high-velocity night race from wherever they are, even around the high traffic areas of the circuit, where over 250,000 spectators are expected, due to the dedicated capacity being allocated to the service.
Ms Anna Yip, CEO of Consumer Singapore, Singtel, said, “We’re extremely excited and honoured to be the official network partner for the upcoming Grand Prix season. This is also why we raced to complete our nationwide standalone 5G coverage in July, 3 years ahead of schedule, in time for Singapore’s National Day and now F1. As the first major international event held here since travel restrictions lifted, this race is significant as it marks Singapore’s comeback and demonstrates the potential of 5G to drive innovation and unlock new digital use cases that can help boost the nation’s recovery. Our CAST app gives race fans full visibility of the track action by enabling high-definition content streaming while locals and tourists can enjoy other digital experiences from making video calls, augmented reality gaming and more with 5G – bringing greater fun to the festivities.”
With Sports Plus on Singtel CAST, at S$9.90 for the week, customers can also enjoy the race on their 5G mobile devices which will offer an enhanced lag-free, high-speed streaming experience.
