After more than a decade, Singapore could finally have its fourth full-fledged telecommunications company.

The newest kid on the block, two-year-old local broadband services provider MyRepublic, says it has fibre connections set up islandwide, and is prepared to begin providing mobile services.

What it needs now is to buy airwaves and roll out base stations to send signals to mobile devices.

Analysts say a fourth telco could enhance competition and give users more options. Already, MyRepublic is saying that it will offer unlimited data bundles - which are not available now.
