IDA to study mobile data experience in Singapore

The bugbear of many consumers – unreliable and slow mobile data access on their smartphones – may be a thing of the past sooner than expected.

The Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) recently launched a tender to collect information on consumers’ experience of mobile networks here.

This is part of plans to roll out new mobile service standards for operators to comply with, such as minimum speeds and lag time for 3G and 4G data.

Analysts have hailed the move, saying that the scope of service standards has to be broadened, given the prevalence of mobile data usage today.
