Fire at SingTel building affecting its mobile, TV and phone coverage
A fire at a SingTel building in Bukit Panjang has led to mobile, television and phone outages across Singapore.
The internet service provider wrote on its Twitter around 3.40pm on Wednesday that some fixed line voice, broadband and mobile services “may (be) affected”, and that it was “working to restore service (as soon as possible)”.
A spokesman for the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it had been alerted to the fire at 40 Woodlands Road at 2.16pm. The fire, which had been “inside the cable room at level one of the building”, was extinguished within 20 minutes of the SCDF’s arrival using two jets, she added. About 50 people had already evacuated themselves prior to the SCDF’s arrival. There were no reported injuries.
Housewife Maggie Goh told The Straits Times that she discovered the problem around 4pm. “My internet and TV are all down, so I’m watching old movies (on DVD) right now. I was wondering why I was staring at a blank screen,” said the 33-year-old.
