Singtel offers unlimited talktime, data, SMS”

In a press release, Singtel said its customers on the "Combo 3, 6 or 12" mobile plans can pay an additional S$39.90 a month for unlimited local data.

Singapore Telecommunications, or Singtel, on Friday launched unlimited local data, talk time and SMS/MMS mobile plans, to protect its market share after other telecom companies in the city-state launched similar plans.

Competition is heating up in Singapore's already crowded market, where the number of mobile subscriptions surpasses the population.

Two weeks ago, M1 and StarHub also announced new plans to cater to data-heavy users.

It provides mobile data speeds of 500Mbps. That's why our DATA X 2 and DATA X 3 add-ons have been so well-received. Existing customers on these plans now get unlimited SMS and talk time.

According to Yuen Kuan Moon, chief executive officer, Consumer Singapore, Singtel, the network will support the latest smartphones iPhone 8, iPhone X, and Samsung Note 8.

Before the announcement of the unlimited plan, M1's most generous data offering came with 25GB of data for $125 a month, with a 12-month contract.

StarHub's line-only plans start from $24 a month for 3GB of mobile data to $119 a month for 15GB of mobile data.

In the terms and conditions, Singtel says: "DATA X INFINITY is exclusively for personal and non-commercial use only". The supplementary plan costs SGD10.70 a month for each line.
