MyRepublic earlier today announced an almost unbeatable data plan. Just hours after the aspiring 4th telco’s announcement, the industry leader Singtel said that it is launching a new add-on DataX2 plan. The new plan will double its post-paid customers mobile data plan for a flat fee of $5.90 per month.
According to Singtel’s new data plan, a customer on a S$62.90 a month Combo 3 Plan with 3GB of data, can just add DataX2 to upgrade to 6GB of data for S$5.90 more a month.
This move is in line with Singtel’s shift towards more data-centric services, and with customers gravitating more towards communications Apps like WhatsApp, Skype, and Line for their messages and voice calls, its shift is understandable.
Singtel’s announcement could also be seen as a sign that the industry-leader is gearing up to thwart MyRepublic’s entry into the telco scene. Such competition can only be good for customers.
Singtel’s customers will able to apply for this add-on from 10 March 2016 onwards.
