SINGAPORE -- Singapore will increase the number of its 5G networks from two to four, spurring competition and thus facilitating an early rollout in 2020, according to Fitch Ratings.

The global ratings agency said that the decision to increase the number of licenses would intensify competition and spur product innovation, particularly in the enterprise segment. This would drive the execution of timely 5G network services in the city-state, it highlighted in a statement.
