SEATTLE TIMES: Singapore's high-tech networkOct 01, 1998, 14:25 (0 Talkback[s])
The government announced plans in 1996 to link every household, school and office in the city-state to an ultrafast network offering information, shopping, entertainment and Internet access.
The project received support from some big high-tech companies, including investments by Microsoft and Motorola.
But only 30,000 Singaporeans - just 1 percent of the population - use it.
If we build it, will they come?
