"Household Penetration" rates are computed by dividing the total 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 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.
1 "Fixed Lines" includes Direct Exchange Lines (“DEL”) and IP Telephony subscriptions using Level '6' numbers.
2 "Total Mobile Subscriptions" includes 2G, 3G subscriptions (including both pre-paid and post-paid subscriptions).

The figures for Jan, Feb, Apr, May, Jul, Aug, Oct and Nov will not be updated and will reflect the latest quarterly figure.

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.
