“Additionally, a number of major submarine cable systems land directly in Global Switch Singapore Tai Seng. Virtually all ISPs, content delivery and hyperscalers are hosted at our two data centres in Singapore. Having Low Latency Datacentre Connect at our sites will enable all other data centres and cable landing stations in Singapore to connect to Global Switch Singapore for access to content and interconnections,” added Teo.
