Singapore users of SingTel mobile data reported Wednesday experiencing difficulties accessing the service for at least an hour in the mid-afternoon.

At about 3pm local time, the carrier released a statement on its Twitter account apologizing for the outage, saying engineers were "investigating the matter." Calls to the carrier's hotline went unanswered due to "unusually high traffic."

About an hour later, it tweeted:

Earlier in the day, the Singapore telco announced that it has received approval from the Australia Securities Exchange to delist its stock, due to low trading volume.

Trading on the ASX will be suspended on May 29, with the effective date of removal of SingTel from the exchange on June 5.
