A US MNC's opinion of Singapore - most productive

Sybase says it chose Singapore because of its IT-savvy population.

Sybase's chairman and CEO, John Chen, said: "The number of hotspots you have here, the attitude of the citizens regarding the use of technology, these were all major contributors to why we are here. This is not the cheapest place to be, but it's certainly in our opinion the most productive place."
Yay for us. I'm a little confused about the "number of hotspots" thing, though. Sure, we have lots, but they are all so terribly expensive for non-business use!
