Total Households refers to total residential dwelling units in Singapore. This figure is computed using the total number of residential subscribers on a per household basis. The number of households is obtained from the Department of Statistics' Statistical Highlights publication.
All subscriber figures are rounded to the nearest hundred.
All penetration figures are rounded to the nearest decimal point.
These telecom statistics are subject to revision from time to time to ensure accuracy.
