CoolConnect Portal to shut down next month

Source: CoolConnect.com

Local portal CoolConnect will shut down at 12pm on 31 Dec 2002. CoolConnect made the announcement on its Web site yesterday. It also sent out an e-mail to its registered members, numbering 569,683, informing them "the services can no longer continue as they are not viable on their own".  

CoolConnect, which has offices in Singapore, Malaysia and Hongkong, is one of Asia's largest hosts of virtual communities. It is estimated that CoolConnect powers more than 40 virtual communities, 1,200 clubs and over 100,000 homepages. With the closure, all of its services will be shut down, including its popular e-mail service ALLOMAIL. 

The portal was formed by the Online Technologies Consortium (OTC) in 1998 with the National Computer Board (now IDA). It was spun off as a separate private entity from the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) in March 2000. Founders of CoolConnect comprise Chairman Michael Yap, President & Chief Operating Officer Ng Kin Yee, Chief Development Officer Chee Yeow Meng and seven other members.

CoolConnect's investors, according to its Web site, are: Venture TDF Pte Ltd, Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, Acer Computer International Ltd, BCS information Systems Pte Ltd, Bank Of Singapore, CSA Holdings Ltd, DBS Computer Services Ltd, i-ONE.net International Ltd, National Computer Systems Pte Ltd, National Library Board, Singapore Computer Systems Ltd, Stratech Systems Ltd and Times Information Systems Pte Ltd.

Users of the portal's free homepage and e-mail services will have to start scouting around for other providers of such free services almost immediately and begin the process of transferring their data to their new hosts.
