There is good news for the data-hungry consumers in Singapore as Singtel has launched mobile plans offering unlimited data today. The move is taken to counter rivals StarHub and M1 who launched similar plans two weeks ago.
“From today, Singtel Combo 3, 6 and 12 mobile plans will be upgraded with unlimited talktime and SMS. Customers who sign up for these plans can enjoy unlimited local data with DATA X INFINITY, an add-on available at just SGD39.90/month”, said a press statement released by Singtel.
Yuen Kuan Moon, Chief Executive Officer, Consumer Singapore, Singtel, said, “We recognise that our customers want flexibility and control over their mobile plans. That’s why our DATA X 2 and DATA X 3 add-ons have been so well-received. And now with DATA X INFINITY as a further option, our customers can enjoy infinite possibilities for how they live, work and play. We’re pleased to offer our customers a truly unlimited mobile experience. With our nationwide network upgrade to 500Mbps supporting the latest iPhone 8 and iPhone X, as well as Samsung Note8, our customers can now enjoy the full potential of their devices at blazing speeds.’’
Customers who subscribe to the unlimited data add-on can choose to pay for a MobileShare supplementary plan to share their data with up to three family members, Singtel said. The supplementary plan costs SGD10.70 a month for each line.
Those who subscribe to Singtel's Combo 6 and 12 plans also get a free data roaming plan.
The other two telcos of Singapore StarHub and M1 last month announced new mobile plans offering unlimited data. StarHub launched five new postpaid plans with free unlimited local data on weekends, while M1 introduced a new SIM-only plan with unlimited data.
