Starhub picks Vyyo for new broadband network

Norcross, GA-based Vyyo (VYYO) has been picked by Singapore’s Starhub to build out a new nationwide broadband network using the 3GHz wireless spectrum.

Vyyo and StarHub will work together to facilitate a deployment of Vyyo 3GHz Spectrum Overlay within the existing StarHub hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) infrastructure, which passes one million homes. Vyyo Spectrum Overlay leverages higher frequencies on existing coaxial cable doubling downstream bandwidth and increasing upstream bandwidth by a factor of at least four. The combination of Vyyo’s Spectrum Overlay with DOCSIS 3.0 gives StarHub the most cost-effective market solution for delivering ultra high-speed data services as well as a clear migration path toward delivering more advanced services in the future.
