Fibre broadband based internet was first available in Singapore in 2010. It allowed consumers to surf at speeds of up to 1Gbps, which was significantly faster than the fastest cable connection available then. I recall that some sections of the population were reluctant with the advent of this new technology as it meant a certain amount of upgradation works, as it would mean infrastructure work externally and also installation of new ports, internally at households. The authorities responded by offering free one time upgrades (meaning those that did not agree to the transition to fibre broadbamd, would have to pay if they changed their minds in the future). That just about settled any further discussions.
This shot was taken at Singapore's historic Central Fire Station, which has a small museum.
