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.
The Info-communications Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) 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.
