Retail Service Providers (RSPs) offer services over the Next Gen NBN to businesses and consumers. The effective open access industry structure which IDA has implemented for the Next Gen NBN allows RSPs to purchase bandwidth connectivity at non-discriminatory and non-exclusive prices, and compete on a level playing field to provide competitive and innovative services to end-users.
Examples of consumer services that have been deployed by RSPs over the Next Gen NBN include Interactive Internet Protocol TV, High-Speed Online Gaming, Online Education and Home-Based Work.
For businesses, some Next Gen services that have been rolled out include Cloud Computing, High-Quality Video Conferencing, Digital Signages, Multimedia Kiosks and Remote Offices.
Business Development Opportunities
The development of a strong community of RSPs is vital to the Next Gen NBN ecosystem and will help pave the way for the creation and proliferation of innovative Next Gen services to consumers and businesses. IMDA supports RSPs in their business development efforts in the following ways:
- Experience and RSP Corner
RSPs can exhibit their Next Gen services or related products at the Infocomm Experience Centre (iExperience) at Esplanade Xchange, and/or to lease kiosks at the Retail Service Provider (RSP) Corner located just outside iExperience to market and promote their products and services.
- Next Gen NBN-enabled logo
RSPs offering services and products that leverage the ultra-high speeds of the Next Gen NBN can adopt the Next Gen NBN-enabled logo to differentiate these services from those being offered over existing networks.
RSPs can apply for a listing under the RSP Exchange, which provides businesses and consumers with a one-stop source of information on service providers offering Next Gen NBN-enabled services.
