On weekdays, StarHub customers can choose from data plans offering 3GB, 4GB, 5GB, 8GB and 15GB, the telco said in a statement on Wednesday (Aug 30).
Meanwhile, StarHub’s new mobile postpaid plans offer free unlimited local data access on Saturdays and Sundays.
These plans start from $48 a month for a 3GB data bundle for a two-year contract with a subsidised mobile device, or $24 a month for the same 3GB no-contract SIM-only plan. The prices are slightly higher than the standard 4G plans StarHub now offers, which range from S$42.90 with 3GB of data and 150 minutes of talk time to S$220 for 12GB of data with unlimited talktime.
Customers can sign up for the new plans from Thursday at StarHub’s website and shops, as well as authorised dealers and at COMEX 2017. With our new data-focused plans, we are enabling our customers to do more of what they love on their smartphones freely and at much faster speeds too.
With the upcoming 1Gbps capable phones, StarHub said it will deploy gigabit-class network upgrades to increase bandwidth.
Outside of the weekends, customers will have between 3 GB and 15 GB of bundled data, which can be upsized and shared with others using the DataJump and DataShare options.
Digital mobile telco Circles.Life was the first to offer an extra 20GB worth of data for S$20 for new and existing subscribers in March this year, while Singtel followed suit a few months later by offering an extra 25GB for S$26.75 for its SIM-only plans.
