SINGAPORE: TPG Telecom leader David Teoh has lost his bid to launch 5G services in Singapore.

The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) conducted a call for proposal process under which only two 3.5GHz spectrum licences were to be allocated to mobile network operators.

The authority announced yesterday that Singapore Telecom and a joint bid from StarHub and M1 had been successful. 

They will be required to provide wholesale access to their 5G services. – Stuart Corner
