Singtel has just responded an hour ago to waive off charges for Singtel mobile customers for using their 4G data to surf the net for the day. Singtel engineers are still trying to rectify the issue. Singtel ADSL users are not affected by this outage as the data is carried through the phone line.
This is the 2nd major fibre broadband outage within 2 months. Starhub fibre broadband was down on 22 Oct as it’s experienced a denial of service attack on it’s network.
