Document Summary:

The official website of Singapore IMDA provides the Guidelines for submission of application for services-based operations licence.

Document Details:

The Singapore telecommunication services market was fully liberalised from 1 April 2000. As required under the Telecommunications Act (Cap. 323), any person operating and providing telecommunication systems and services in Singapore has to be licensed. 1.2 The Info-communications Media Development Authority (the “Authority”) has adopted a two-pronged licensing approach that differentiates between licensees based on the nature of their operations i.e. whether facilities-based or services-based type of operations. This set of Guidelines is intended to provide interested parties with an overview of the licensing framework for licence applicants intending to deploy services-based operations in Singapore and to guide them in applying for the relevant licences.
