Hi Rich,

No it's 50Hz. Being an ex British colony they have kept much from that
time. Actually they are one of the few places I'm aware of that use the
UK square three pin AC plugs and sockets, in addition to UK that is, the
only other one I know of being Hong Kong.

Actually they are quite a few steps ahead of the rest of the planet in
some things. Every home has a minimum 256K always on internet connection
for example.

Maybe Singapore is now in step with most of the planet.

Is it 60Hz?
