    SingTel fire disrupts mobile and bank services

    A FIRE at a SingTel building in Bukit Panjang has led to mobile, television and phone disruptions across Singapore.

    The Internet service provider wrote on Twitter around 3.40pm yesterday that some fixed-line voice, broadband and mobile services might be affected, and that it was working to restore service as soon as possible.

    DBS Bank's ATM network and StarHub's broadband and cable-TV services were also disrupted by the fire.

    The affected bank branches include those at Ang Mo Kio Central and Ngee Ann City.

    StarHub said services for some customers were affected as it leases some SingTel optical- fibre capacity that runs through the exchange that caught fire.
