First World efficiency lacking
A SINGTEL sales representative - or one from its partner - visited my home on Nov 27 and I signed up for its fibre-optic broadband service. I received an SMS the next day stating that my service appointment for the connection would be on Jan 12 next year. A letter with the same message arrived in the mail Dec 2. I called the SingTel call centre twice and the response both times was: The connection date cannot be brought forward.Why can SingTel not engage more service teams to speed up the installation process? Why should the fibre-optic network infrastructure sit idle for over a month'.It has been a long time since Singaporeans had to wait so long for basic services. We can apply for water and utility services and get connected within a day or two. What happened to the basic efficiency we have achieved to compete effectively with neighbouring economies? My experience with Hong Kong's City Telecom illustrates how SingTel can improve. City Telecom single-handedly developed the fibre-optic network covering over 95 per cent of homes in Hong Kong. In Singapore, the development of the fibre-optic network infrastructure is largely funded by the Government and yet the rates charged by telcos for similar service packages are twice those charged by City Telecom.Public transport and the taxi service in Singapore suffer the same problem as SingTel. How independent are the different taxi operators? How truly competitive is the taxi business'When ComfortDelGro announced revised fare increases, the National Taxi Association was said to be in talks with other taxi operators to urge them to adjust their fares as well ('NTA's action seen by some as price-fixing bid'; Thursday).The Competition Commission of Singapore had fined 16 maid employment agencies for price fixing ('16 maid agencies fined for price-fixing'; Oct 1). Are not the actions of the taxi operators similar'The National Taxi Association should be dismantled as it is anti-competitive and will result in poor efficiency and high costs.
