In a surprising move, Singtel takes another step to let its subscribers get more data in a new option known as DataX2. DataX2 doubles the amount of data that the subscriber have in their plans. Subscribers on DataMore plan, while still able to subscribe to DataX2, can only enjoy double the data as subscribed on their combo plan. Caveat is, it is only open to new and re-contracting subscribers.
Perhaps, with the anticipation of the fourth telco – who has given indication of promising unlimited data, this is a good move/or ploy, whichever way you see it, for Singtel to lock-in the subscriptions.
Read on for the applicable data plans and the press release.
Singapore, 9 March, 2016 – In conjunction with the opening of IT Show 2016, Singtel will launch DataX2, a new add-on that offers customers double their mobile data allowance for a flat fee of S$5.90
The new data option is an extension of Singtel’s move to offer more data-centric services following the introduction of its popular SIM Only Plan last year. Today’s customers need even more data given their changing consumption of entertainment content and DataX2 will allow them to double their data allowance for just S$5.90 a month whenever they sign up or re-contract on one of Singtel’s Combo Mobile Plans (Combo 2 and above).
For example, a customer on a S$62.90 a month Combo 3 Plan with 3GB of data, can simply add DataX2 to enjoy 6GB of data for S$5.90 more a month.
Mr Yuen Kuan Moon, CEO of Consumer Singapore, Singtel said, “The decision to expand our data-centric mobile plan offerings came naturally to us as this is exactly what customers want. Better value for their mobile data. With DataX2, customers can enjoy double their data allowance and more of their favourite videos and music on the go. Extra data has never been more affordable.”
Customers who sign up for DataX2 at IT Show 2016, online or at any Singtel Shop and Singtel Exclusive Retailer from 10 March 2016 will be able to enjoy double the data immediately.
