In a statement, the company said the service was bundled with the Razer Sila gaming router — worth S$409.90 (A$419.30) — which allowed gamers to link to the fastest gaming servers.
The service will cost S$69.90 per month on a two-year contract and can be taken up by new or existing customers. It features a dual network which offers 1Gbps dedicated bandwidth for gaming and 1Gbps for other usage.
The Razer Sila will be offered to Singapore customers for the first time in Asia, the statement said, adding that the broadband bundle would provide access to the WTFast Gamer Private Network service that lowered latency and selected optimised connections to gaming servers.
“Online gaming is extremely popular with our customers. This requires high connectivity performance and specialised devices to optimise the gaming experience. By bringing together Singtel’s superior network connectivity and Razer’s Sila gaming router, we believe the 1+1 Gbps Fibre Pro Gamer Bundle will provide the ultimate performance for gamers.”
The 1+1 Gbps Fibre Pro Gamer Bundle will be launched on Friday at the opening of Singtel’s inaugural PVP Esports Championship in Suntec City.
The three-day event will see top teams from Australia, India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand compete in mobile game Arena of Valor and PC game Dota 2 for a total prize pool of S$300,000.
The statement said Singtel had identified esports as a growth area as it sought to build digital businesses in the Asia Pacific region.
