Honouring a Pioneer

By May 16, 2016Nation

We enjoy high-speed Internet connectivity today… but do you know the pioneers of Singapore’s telecoms industry? Meet 91-year-old Mr Sim Say Hai. A telecoms engineer since pre-Independence, he and his team established Singapore’s first satellite earth station on Sentosa.

Watch his reaction as theatre actress Ethel Yap of Pangdemonium’s Tribes fame brings him on a walk down memory lane – to revisit the historic site. While there, she lets viewers in on a sweet surprise.

In honour of our telecoms pioneers on World Telecommunications Day.
