SingTel launched the CallZone service for businesses in 2010. It requires 10 Mbit/s ADSL connection or similar wireline broadband connectivity in the office. The femtocell is installed and setup by the operator.
Prices in Singapore Dollars:
- Price $323 plus adaptor $21. Non-refundable.
- Installation $53.50
- Monthly price of $53.50 for one user, $26.75 for additional users which allows unlimited calls to national numbers/mobiles

The femtocell appears to be open access to any Singtel mobile subscriber, but the free local call charges only apply to those registered with the service and paying the monthly fee.
The SingTel website page describing the service is no longer visible and it is likely that the product is no longer for sale to new customers.
