COVID-19 has heightened the importance of connectivity to enable people to continue to work, live and play, said Deputy Speaker Jessica Tan in Parliament on Tuesday (Mar 2). 5G network technology can enable significantly enhanced connectivity and new capabilities, she added. But it also increases cybersecurity risks. She asked about Singapore's approach and plans for 5G to ensure that consumers, businesses and the wider society benefit from 5G deployment while minimising the associated risks.
