^Population Penetration rate figures from Jun 2008 onwards have been re-computed based on the estimated mid-year population figures for 2008 released by the Department of Statistics in Sep 2008. Population Penetration Rate = [Total number of subscriptions/Total Population].
"Household Penetration" rates are computed by dividing the total residential subscriptions by "Total Households". "Total Households" refers to the total number of residential dwelling units in Singapore. "Household Penetration" rates for Jun 2007-May 2008 and from Jun 2008 onwards have been re-computed based on the estimated mid-year dwelling units figures obtained from the Department of Statistics in Oct 2008 for 2007 and 2008 respectively.
All figures for subscriptions are rounded to the nearest hundred.
All figures for penetration rates are rounded to the nearest decimal point.
With effect from Aug 2008, figures for the following services are no longer published:
- Total Paging Subscriptions (26,100)
- Paging Penetration (0.5%)
- Total Residential Internet Dial-up (76,700)
- Total Corporate Internet Dial-up (38,600)

8 From Apr 2007, the "Household Broadband Penetration" rate includes wireless access plans (provided via 3.5G/HSDPA and WiMAX or its equivalent). It excludes subscriptions to 3G and Wi-Fi hotspots. This figure is computed using the total number of residential broadband subscribers on a per household basis. Please note that this is not reflective of the proportion of households with broadband in Singapore. For a more reflective number, please refer to IDA's Household Survey findings.
